When you’ve hit your drive into trouble and have to manufacture a low fade to get out of trouble, there are a few things you need to do to ensure you get back into play.
First, make a smart club choice to take any chance of getting the ball into the limbs out of play. Next, you’re going to want to close the face so that it takes off low and left before it rises and cuts based on your body line and swing shape. It’s a three-quarter swing.
Put pressure into your lead side with the ball in the middle of your stance, grip down on the club and keep your hands forward through impact.
