Power Fade

August 9, 2015 Posted by Matt

Power FadeOne of the best shots to have in your arsenal is a power fade that you can use for your tee shots.  The power fade goes high down the left side of the hole and gently fades back to the middle of the fairway.  It is easy to control and will help you hit more fairways.  To hit this shot, aim the face of your driver down the center of the fairway.  Then aim your feet, hips, and shoulders slightly to the left.  Swing along the line created by your body and you will feel a slight outside-to-in swing.  The ball will fly high and gently turn to the right and land softly.  Practice this shot or ask your pro to teach it to you as your go-to shot when you mist hit the fairway.
