Tip no. 4 - The Fade
with Pachesham Golf Academy

Favoured by many of the most accurate golfers in history, such as Harry Vardon, Ben Hogan, Jack Nicklaus and Colin Montgomerie, the fade can help you stay on the fairway off the tee and stop the ball on firm, fast greens.

Please note: all lessons refer to right-handed golfers

Players who set up with the weight distributed in the heels with poor spinal tilt will often struggle with poor rotation of the body this can lead to the club being trapped inside the line as the arms have no room to swing through the ball.

A good posture, with the weight on the balls of the feet, will create room for the hips and torso to rotate in the downswing, leading to the arms swinging on a better path out in front of the body.

This will improve your consistency of strike and direction.
