What Is the Difference Between a Draw & a Fade in Golf?

A draw curves from the player’s right to his left (for a right-handed golfer) while a fade moves in the opposite direction, from left to right.

Some players hit draw shots or fade shots naturally.

Is a fade better than a draw?

“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.

What is a cut in golf terms?

Hitting a cut shot in golf requires some subtle changes to your stance and swing. A cut shot, or fade, is when your right-handed swing sends the golf ball to the right, or to the left for left-handed golfers. Working the ball in either direction is essential to reducing your score for a round of golf.

What is the difference between a cut and a fade?

In golf, “cut shot” is a term applied to a type of controlled golf shot in which a golfer induces a fade ball flight. “Fade” is a term applied to any moderate left-to-right ball movement (for a right-hander) in flight. (A severe curve from left to right is a “slice.”)

Why do golfers hit a draw?

The main reason why a draw is useful comes down to the technical make up of the golf shot. To hit a draw, the swing must be attacking the golf ball from the inside with the club face open to the target, and closed to the swing path. That is one of the reason golf pros play the draw shot more often.

How do you hit a draw?

Golf Draw Method (Easier Version)

  • Set up so that the club face is aiming slightly to the right of your target.
  • Aim your feet, hips and shoulders further to the right than the club face (this will, in effect, give the club face a closed position in relation to the swing path, imparting draw spin on the golf ball).

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.

If you have straight or thin hair, achieving a good looking fade may be harder, and you may be limited on styles.
