Why Does a Draw Go Farther Than a Slice?

A draw usually has a lower trajectory so you get more roll once the ball hits the ground.

Slices and Draws

“Draw” and “slice” are not mirror golf shots.

For a right-handed golfer, a draw moves gently from right-to-left, a hook moves severely from right-to-left, and a fade moves gently from left-to-right, a slice moves severely from left-to-right.

A draw tends to have over-spin, which will cause it to run, where a fade tends to have backspin and lands “soft”.
