I've given up on trying to crush the ball off the tee or from the fairway. Since then, I've been hitting the ball a lot straighter. But what about those situations were the shot calls for a little fade or draw? Do you have any advice to help me create those benders when necessary? Thanks for the help.

For a fade, line up square to the ball as if taking a normal shot, but move your front foot back a couple of inches, open the club face slightly and take an inside-out swing. This will make the shot fade to the right for right-handed golfers and left for lefties.
To make a shot hook, do just the opposite. Move your front foot toward the ball and step backwards a little bit. Rotate the club face slightly toward you and take a swing.
