Understanding the swing path is going to help you control the shape of your ball, which builds consistency and builds confidence. 

If you want to hit a draw, you need to make sure that your setup is slightly closed because your alignment will control your path into the ball. 

Setting up alignment rods that aim left, right and directly at your target will give you immediate feedback as to how you should align your body to groove your desired shot shape.
