Do You Get More Distance With A Draw?

Yes, generally, drawing the golf ball will make it travel a longer total distance than hitting a fade.

Well, it’s true to say that the direction of the spin, left versus right, draw spin versus fade spin, won’t in itself change the distance that the ball travels.

Does a draw go further?

“Provided the ball speed, launch angle and spin rate are the same, a draw and fade will carry and roll the same distance. However, from a practical perspective, most club golfers will hit a draw further than a fade, because when they hit a draw they reduce the loft, leading to lower spin rates.

Is it better to fade or draw the ball?

Simply put, a draw is going to go farther than a fade in most circumstances. If you were to use exactly the same swing speed to hit a draw and a fade, the ball that turned over from right to left would almost always travel farther in the end.

Does a draw have topspin?

In ball sports, topspin is a property of a ball that rotates forwards as it is moving. Topspin on a ball propelled through the air imparts a downward force that causes the ball to drop, due to its interaction with the air (see Magnus effect). Topspin is the opposite of backspin.

Does higher loft promote a draw?

Yes, loft affects bias somewhat. If you loft up you will increase the draw. If you loft down you will decrease the draw. In other words if I set my 10.5 driver to +1 or 11.5 then I slightly close the face and increase draw bias.
