OVERVIEW

Every now and then, you’ll catch a drive that goes high, far and straight down the fairway. But being able to do that consistently is one of the toughest tasks that amateurs face. In this video, Brian Manzella discusses how to work the ball both ways and identify the best drive for you.

For a fade, swing the club straight back, and let your body turn lead the downswing

To set up a draw, play the ball inside the front heel, and close your chest to the target
email
For a draw, turn back fully, and keep your back to the target longer on the downswing
