Question for Single Digit Handicappers With a Draw

Do you also draw your sand and lob wedges on full swings? If not, do you adjust your aimpoint left (as compared to your longer wedges and irons) to compensate for straight (non-draw) ball flight?

My stock shot is a pull draw. I tend to hit little pulls with my sand wedge and lob wedge. They don't draw like my longer clubs do, but I do end up left of where I line up.

On all my normal full swing shots, I aim at the center of my chosen, targeted landing area. 

My shots can go reasonbly straight, or sometimes they will tail off at the very end maybe left, or maybe right. I have no consistent ball flight pattern, other than those three.

No, my gap, sand and lob wedges all go straight.  I mean, they don’t curve, not that they always go where I aim. 😉

One caveat tho, I don’t ever really take full swings with any of them.  Don’t think they’d curve much even if I did tho.

I aim where I need to for the ball to end up where I want given the anticipated ball flight.  Whether that’s a draw, straight shot, or fade.

Now, if only what I anticipated actually happened more often...  :8)

The more loft on the club, the less curve left or right it will display. That is, unless you can manipulate it like Bubba Watson! Or any other Tour pro you can name. And some of them can't even do it! 

When I played at my best, my longer clubs displayed a mild, baby draw. My short irons went string straight. I could manipulate the longer clubs somewhat to get them to do what I wanted to, but the shorter clubs resisted my efforts.
