The Draw shot in golf curves slightly from right to left for a right-handed golfer and conversely for left-handed golfers. The shot is often played intentionally by skilled golfers and is achieved by tilting the spin of the ball with a slightly closed clubface on an in-to-out swing path.

Did you know?

A draw produces both distance and control and therefore is a favored ball flight for better golfers. Get your swing on the correct path and you will master the draw.

What you need to know: A draw is only possible with an In-to-Out path. An overdone draw usually becomes a hook



How to I hit a draw? Set up so that the club face is aiming slightly to the right of your target. Aim your feet, hips and shoulders further to the right than the club face (this will, in effect, give the club face a closed position in relation to the swing path, imparting draw spin on the golf ball).

How much distance can I gain with a draw? Yes, generally, drawing the golf ball will make it travel a longer total distance than hitting a fade.

If I draw the ball into a dross wind do I loose distance? Yes
