Why Do Draw Shots 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 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.

Does a draw add distance?

Unfortunately, only a few golfers can really move it out there with a fade. For the most part, if you want distance, hitting a draw is what you want.

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.

What goes further a draw or fade?

“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 loft driver do most pros use?

Most average swing speed golfers (88-90 mph) don’t use enough loft in their drivers due to seeing the pros using 9-10 degrees effective loft.

How can I tell my swing speed?

Divide your average drive distance by 2.3. This will give you your average club head speed in miles per hour. For instance, if your average drive distance is 202 yards, your average club head speed is 202 divided by 2.3, or approximately 87.8 mph.
