Quick question and I might know the answer but I am too stubborn.    I play to about a 1 and hit the ball a ways(265-290) off the tee.  I like to fade or cut my driver and 3 wood, but I will draw everything else.  Here is where I have been getting into trouble...  if I am going into the wind I feel that I have to draw my driver...  and alot of the time my miss is a snap or push with no draw.  I can flight it down a bit with the cut but I just think in my head that I have to try and get that extra 10-15 yards by hitting the draw.   If I was not an idiot I would just play the cut all the time and who cares if I have 1-2 more clubs in, at least I will be in the fairway.

So question for the pros that hit the cut shot or fade...   DJ or Holmes...   unless they absolute have to hit a draw around a dog leg, do they play their stock cut-fade into the wind?

A draw does not go farther than a fade.  Hit the ball solid so you avoid extra spin

Wind Lesson #1

When it's breezy, swing easy....

Everyone gets in trouble trying to hit through the wind, you must accept your drive will be shorter into the wind and you will have a longer shot into the green that will require taking 1-2-3 extra clubs.

Resist over-swinging!!!
