¬†As an aside, here`s what wikipedia says about Hank Haney…

Hank Haney (born August 24, 1955) is an American professional golf instructor best known for coaching Tiger Woods[1] and two-time major championship winner Mark O’Meara. A graduate of the University of Tulsa, Haney owns and operates four teaching facilities in the Dallas, Texas area. Haney says, “My philosophy as a teacher is to teach my students to become their own best teacher by getting them to understand the flight of the golf ball and how it relates to the swing, with emphasis on swinging the golf club on their own correct swing plane”

Getting back to the fade. I totally agree that it`s the best and or easiest way to hit a fairway. You may not get the full distance but you will be playing from the fairway. Here`s an excerpt from Hank Haney`s Golf Digest article…

Hank Haney-When To Hit A Fade

The no. 1 goal off the tee is putting the ball in play. And probably the easiest shot to control with a driver is a fade because the ball doesn’t roll as far. The most important thing to know about playing a controlled fade is that the clubface must be slightly open to the swing path at impact. When you’re playing a fade, the timing of the swing is the real key. If your hands and arms outrace your body through impact, the clubface tends to close too fast, causing the ball to hook. Feel that your body–and in particular your hips–are leading the clubhead through the shot (left). The faster you turn your body through, the less chance the face will close too much.

Hank Haney-When To Hit A Fade… pretty simple… something to use when you really,really need to hit a fairway.
