I'm currently playing off 15. I drive the ball fairly long but as you would expect of a 15 handicapper I'm inconsistent - sometimes straight up the middle, sometimes a bit hooky, sometimes a push out to the right.
I went to the range on Saturday and decided I would try to fade every ball with my driver. I hit 100 balls and every single one of them faded nicely. I picked a couple of spots in the distance left and right and imagined they were the left and right edges of the fairway. I would say that at least 90 of the shots landed between those points, and those that didn't were not far off.
I'm really stoked about this and thinking this could be a real breakthrough for me. I'm not intending to hit a fade with any other shots (unless I'm in front of a tree or something) - just fade every drive to try to make sure I'm on the fairway.
What do you guys think of this as a strategy ?
Hint : I want you all to say it's great !!
