DUSTIN JOHN­SON ELIM­I­NATED ONE SIDE

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - The Golf Life | Equipment -

In 2015, Dustin went to a fade off the tee, and his en­tire game changed. He took the left miss out by aim­ing a lit­tle left and let­ting the ball slide right. I showed him the Nick­laus way of hit­ting a fade: Aim the club­face where you want the ball to fin­ish, then align your body to the left of that. That let Dustin be as ag­gres­sive as he wanted with no fear of the hook. It’s not a big curve to the right. I call it a “slider fade,” like Lee Trevino hit – ex­cept 50 me­tres fur­ther. When Dustin’s driv­ing it well, no­body can beat him.
