I cannot for the life of me figure out what is causing this. My alignment is centered or slightly closed. I can work the ball pretty well with all clubs except my driver. I either hit it fairly straight or that high fade. I cannot draw the ball with a driver at all and its frustrating.
Why can I draw all other clubs but no Driver.
Also i feel like sometimes after impact i release the club to the left (or inside) of the target line, rather than straight through down the line.
Whats a good drill to correct this?
Sounds like you have inconsistency with the clubface angle at impact. Assuming your swing path is as consistent as you say, your misses are simply: closed face=pull draw, open face=push fade. Hard to tell what your path is, but I doubt it deviates more than a few degrees either way.
As for your driver, if you hit the ball with a descending blow, your path will be more inside out. The opposite is also true. You seem to hit the driver on the upswing, which will make your path more out to in. The only way to hit a draw from that position is to hit a pull draw. If you want to hit a straight or push draw, you have to hit the ball earlier on your swing arc. Either push your weight forward more or tee the ball slightly back.
As for the release, I'm not quite sure how to answer that. What do you mean by release? Do you feel like you throw the club or turn your wrists or flip? I actually have an early extension problem, so one of the things I work on is feeling like I'm swinging to the left.
