You could use a slight fade but ball is sitting down in the grass and you are still over 200 yards away from the pin.
Your ball landed in a divot in the middle of the fairway. You overshoot your target because you tried to dig the ball out of the divot or selected the incorrect club for the shot.
Your ball is sitting in a depression and you have about 140 yards before you reach the green.
The wind is blowing into your face and you are about 100 yards from the pin.
You normally have difficulty drawing the ball because you do not release the clubhead freely at the point of contact.
You always hit past the pin when chipping even though you try hard to get the ball up into the air.
You top the ball or hit above center with the clubhead traveling on too high a line resulting in a weak fade.
You want to draw the ball using your 5-iron and gain additional yardage. This can be achieved by adding overspin to the shot.
You decelerate your swing during short shots or try to scoop the ball up while pitching, only to find that the ball flies short. Another possible cause of a fat pitch is that you are only shifting your hips and your upper body stays behind the ball; the club will then bottom out too soon for a thin or fat contact.
The ball pulls to the right when using your irons due to swinging too fast.
