Hello Mr. Nunn,

I`m 54 years old, average build and a 17 handicap.  My swing speed for my driver is 88-95 m.p.h. and I use a regular flex shaft.  Most of my shots (irons and driver) always produce a fade...usually just a slight fade with all of my irons (P.W. to 7 iron) and a fade with my driver.  I don`t mind fades on my irons...especially into the greens but it`s my drives that I`d like to hit straighter).  I`ve tried many things to correct it i.e slightly closed stance, stronger grip to have the club a little more closed at impact, but I still fade the ball.  Should I try an off-set driver.  If not, what would you suggest.  

Thank you so much.


HI Mr. Germain;

I would love to answer you directly, but without seeing your swing, it is near impossible to isolate the issue.  I would suggest that you locate a local professional up there to assist, as there are too many deviations to try and guess at it.

Good luck in your quest to become better.
