I've been working on my swing and have got my fade back under control for my driver. My wedges and irons never really suffered from it anyway. But my long hybrids still have it and I'm struggling to get it under control. I know that a fade becomes less likely/noticeable with higher lofts so probably it's just something about my 'not a driver' swing that is different.

I control the fade on the driver by being sure to increase my secondary tilt when I bump my hips and making sure to swing out along the target line on my follow-through. When swinging I have a thought in the back of my mind that the swing path is turned 15 degrees away to the right of target (I'm right handed). It doesn't work out that way but I'm mindful of that concept.

But this doesn't seem as easy with other clubs. It sorta helps but it's very hard to do it consistently. I had some success last night by configuring my 3h to draw but I think that's just a workaround. It seems wrong that I have to configure the 3h to draw when I have my driver set up as neutral.

I don't have a swing video to add yet but I was wondering if anyone could suggest what else I could consider or whether I just have to keep plugging away at it.
