PLAYING better golf continues with an article about the Fade, writes Allan Perry.It's time to teach you how to control the golf ball this, week I will be teaching you how to play a fade (moving the ball from left to right) this will give us a further shot to call upon on the course.In the picture below, we can see how we are faced with a tree directly in line with the target and the only shot I can really play is manoeuvring the ball from left to right (fade).Most of the work just like the draw shot is done in the set up:1) Align your feet, hips and shoulders where you would like the ball to start its flight, in this case to the left of the target.2) Aim your club where you would like the ball to finish (at the target)3) Move the ball position towards the left heelThis will, I am sure look a bit strange as the club face is pointing out to the right. Keep your swing the same as normal, swinging the club on the line of your feet, hips, and shoulders will make sure that you cut across the ball moving spinning its flight from left to right. As usual, the very best of luck to you golfers.Book now for a Private lesson with Allan and see what improvements you can make to your golf swing.
