no offence but I'm guessing the '3' in Simon Young 3 is not your age..... therefore I'm guessing your probably not Simon Young the Third as that would be spelt III.. by process of elimination and as this is a discussion site on golf would I be close thinking this was your handicap?
If I'm right well done...you don't get to 3 on talent alone so hardwork and practice does pay off (and perhaps a few lessons along the way).
I'll cut to the chase. Like many on this site I play when I can, which is not as often or as regular as I like. I'm 100% with you on alignment - see my review of 'Line-em up pro' which I used to line up my tee shots as well as puts. Guess what, I still faded/sliced my drives although I hit my irons straight.
Here's my theory, the length of shaft and loft on the driver (along with wanting to hit as far as a 3 hcp'er added to the stress most feel on the tee) means returning the clubface square at impact is a little harder than with other clubs. This is something the club and shaft manufacturers realise and hence have developed the technology to help those less fortunate or who think money can buy anything.
So I think neither one of us is wrong although for the less gifted and those who just want to enjoy their golf, I say three cheers for the draw driver, but don't waste money get it fitted.
PS - There's a bloke I know called Phil who I think might agree with me as he sometimes carries two drivers. One to draw and one to fade.
PPS - trackman revealed that my angle of attack with the driver was slightly decending which created backspin. The cure was widening my stance and teeing the ball ever so slightly higher. I worked although I brought on a slight fade so I'm now able to shape my draw driver left to right.... So why can't Lefty?
