I recommend you take a look at this

No please read what I wrote again, red part below.  The best players in the world consistently play with a club face that is NOT square to the target.  Guys that draw it have a face RIGHT of the target and guys that fade it have a face LEFT of the target.

yeah I meant are you talking 3 degrees right of the target or swing path but I looked some videos up and understand now, do you recommend I get an instructor with a trackman or simulator? My current coach who walks around the range and gives advice and I see like 2 times a year uses video camera and has a pretty old fashion style of the game. My other option is the long drive guy the beast fister who just opened up and has all of the equipment

I cant get into all this technical discuss. I have two simple swing thoughts.

When I hook the ball, I feel like Im swinging my arms radially.

When I draw the ball, I feel like Im rolling my wrist.

I know that's simple , but it KISS thoughts that I rely on at the course and its worked for me.

Not necessarily.  I would recommend someone that can answer this question correctly: What mainly contributes to the initial start line of a golf shot?

 

And any instructors on this list

From what I've learned from my current instructor I don't think he has read into it very much.

I appreciate al,the help guys. But I have come to the conclusion I can not physically hit a draw. At best I hit it halfway straight. Very frustrating! c1_cursing.gifd1_bigcry.gif

I bet you can.  Try this drill, might just need to feel  or exaggerate some these pieces more
