I've been wondering about the difference between the two common ways to play a draw.
Shot A (push draw): Square alignment. My swing path is 4* open to target, and clubface is 2* closed to path.
Shot B (straight draw): Alignment is 4* closed to target. I swing straight along my feet, and clubface is 2* closed to path.
Are launch conditions the same? Are the ball flights identical? In both cases I'm swinging 4* right of target with a clubface thats 2* open to target, but are there other factors involved that could make these shots different?
In this video starting around 9:30, Grant says that to hit a high shot, he puts the ball a bit forward and hits a push draw. He claims that because face is open to target, you're adding dynamic loft, and the ball will go higher. I was thinking that since the clubface is closed to the path, you're actually reducing dynamic loft. That's what made me wonder about the difference between Shot A and Shot B? Thoughts?
