I play a shotgun pattern. I have a rough idea of my dispersion with a given club and attempt to aim the middle of that pattern over the safest spot presented to me on a given shot. I'm following the basics of the Decade golf method and don't care what type of ball flight I get from shot to shot. I will try to hit semi-straight partial wedge shots to pins when I'm playing well and inside of 100 yards.
Currently straight I have changed my swing last few months and moved away from the unwanted fade that plagued me for years.
After I get comfortable with this new swing, I will start to work on the draw. Trying to keep things as simple as possible at the moment.
Low draw with driver and woods, which can turn into a snap hook if I get too enthusiastic. Straight to very slight draw with irons. But I'm not above a random two-way miss or double cross on any given shot, either.
With the driver and 3h, a fade. As the clubs get shorter, ball flight becomes straighter. I don't hit many draws since changing my iron swing this year and I'm ok with the results, even if the yardage is a bit less. Last year's iron swing produced a draw with some really good distances on occasions, but the distances were terribly inconsistent.
Fade, always want to be hitting a fade except a flighted low wedge, I found a draw spins more on those and I can get a bounce and then a hard check. I can play a draw if need be because I am in trouble. But my mind sees a fade and it is much easier to adjust how much it moves compared to a draw.
My driver miss is slice. Anything other than that is ideal really since I couldn't hook a driver if I tried. I can hit straight and that's what I play now, but a draw would be a dream.
When I started I couldn't hit irons. First they'd push right. Then I tried to fix it and found a hook. Few years ago I got irons to go straight consistently so now I just need to worry about distance control. I'll take it!
I prefer a medium trajectory with driver. I know that I could maximize yardage with more height and carry but I'm long enough and I want that thing down and away from trouble just the same.
For shape, while I'd prefer a draw, I'd been losing it right for a while now so straightish to slight fade is a thing of beauty to my eyes just the same.
Irons, I'll typically draw. Prefer a med/high trajectory with long to mid irons with a slight draw. I prefer a flatter, more medium trajectory with wedges (relative to loft). I don't really like shooting full swing wedges high. So I'll flatten trajectory with either more club, ball back a bit in stance or a combo of both.
Maybe because their design jibed so well with my preferences, I LOVED the Tour Flighted Rifle shafts, pre-Project-X.
A draw, overall, suits my eye better as it was my shot-shape throughout the bag for probably 20 years. Not so, top of the bag anymore. But I have somehow increased the frequency of the random draw off the tee as of late. Hope the trend continues and accelerates.
