A draw is the opposite of a fade.
A draw has the same right-to-left curvature of a hook; however, a hook is much more severe and is rarely played intentionally. A draw, on the other hand, is considered a good shot to have in one's arsenal (which is to say, a good shot to be able to produce intentionally) and is sometimes the preferred shot shape for better golfers. A draw can also cause the ball to roll out farther in the fairway, adding a few extra yards.
