How to hit a fade: Main points

One of the first things you need to do is have the ball slightly further forward in the stance. That gives you enough time during your downswing to get the face open to the path.

What this means is that with the golf club path going to the left your face to path needs to be slightly open to the right.

Aim slightly to the left and make sure the club face is pointing in between where your feet are pointing and the flag.
