Hey guys, today I was hitting balls at the range to get my regular push draw down and did 90% of the time but for some reason, on the course afterwards I hit push fades often. I don't think a double cross means if we're hitting push draws, our double cross is a pull fade because on regular good shots, shouldn't we hopefully be good enough to have our path be a constant direction? I think it means it starts the same way as our regular good shot but it curves opposite of what we intended. So I went back to the range and what I did was intentionally hit my push fade double cross miss on every shot and then I played the course again intending to play the push draw on every shot and strange enough, I was drawing everything really well! If golf is a game of misses, shouldn't we practice them on the range so we don't have to play them on the course?

No.

A true double-cross is one where you are, say, playing a fade and you hit a straight up pull or a pull that draws a little. Your miss would qualify too.

But if that's your miss, and you hit it often enough that you think you should plan for it, then it's just a miss, and your shot zone is too wide. Your shot cone is too wide.

Just hit your shot more. Don't "practice" a double-cross. The point of a double cross is that you don't know when it's going to happen.
