    It's all about rendering and this game just doesn't do that properly. It requires imagination.  :-)

    Funny how we each look for our own . Some of us find it and others dont  .

    here is shot using draw like effect... and getting around the trees.... 

    here is trying to hit same location aiming straight … doesn't work quite so well ...

    seems like a pretty clear difference to me... and I definitely see a curve like arc to the shot against what happened to be low winds mimicking a draw like effect.

    the effect can be tweaked with balls with higher dist and spin ratings... this was a rock.

    You'll see draw and fade results w/ the DRIVER and some say slightly the 3W but not the irons.

    Plus, using a draw and fade IRL is beyond just 'hitting around trees', it's about margin of error, hazards on the ground, rollout and also consistent execution. (as Jack Nicklaus prefers to fade forward)

    People with money to spend on great clubs and balls on WGT don't know those w/ lesser equipment are trying to lower their margin of error by controlling the ball flight but it's a large part of technique IRL omitted by for some reason.  (in iron shots, not the driver) <-- another weird inconsistency.
