There are many factors in the decision to hit a draw or fade: are you playing a dogleg, what is the wind direction, is your ball in the fairway or rough, what are the hazard locations (if any) and where is the pin located?
Lee Trevino's favorite shot was the fade which he hit consistently. Generally though, the draw is favored by most Professional golfers because they claim they have better control with that type of shot. Learn one or the other, or both and watch your handicap plummet!
