00:05
Let's be honest, there is absolutely nothing sexy
00:08
about slicing the ball.
00:09
But I'm gonna show you how to turn that slice
00:11
into a power fade.

(energetic music)

Now, the power fade is essentially a draw
00:20
with an open face.
00:21
Here's how to hit the power fade.
00:23
The first thing I'm gonna do is align my feet up
00:25
on the start line.
00:26
So this is where my ball is gonna begin,
00:28
and my club face is gonna be a little bit open,
00:30
and this is essentially going to be where I want
00:32
the ball to end up.
00:33
I'm gonna stand a little bit closer to the ball
00:36
with a little open club face,
00:38
and I'm going make this nice draw swing.
00:41
So a little inside out.
00:42
I'll show you how it's done.
