don't know why my "draw" & "fade" selectors are reversed when I am on any course; DRAW IN ON THE RIGHT SIDE & FADE IS ON THE LEFT SIDE at the bottom of the screen.....how the heck to you change so its correct ??????

you must have the experimental left handed golfer.

I got no ideas,.... what happens when you use it?
is it just the labels that are wrong ? or is the whole thing bassakwards?

my suggestion for a workaround would be:
if it is just the labels? ignore them and click left for draw, and right for fade.
if it is drawing when you click right, and fading when you click left,
then you know what to do , even if your brain says different.

I have no idea how or who to ask at EA to fix it.
maybe someone else does?

Mine has always been like that. You'll quickly get used to it shurshoot. I don't have a problem with it. It's the golf I have a problem with.

It has always been like that. Fade on the left, and draw on the right. Just remember, when you do a fade, the ball goes right, and a draw, the ball goes left. After you've played 5000 rounds, you'll get the hang of it. If I can use it with some expertise, then you won't have a problem. I'm half brain dead from the 60's, 70's, and 80's from too much partying.

I love to blame EA for all sorts of stuff as much as the next guy, but in this case I have to take their side.
The current swing arrows indicate accurately how the ball spins arounds its central axis when lateral spin is imparted. A slice is generated by hitting the ball from the outside of the swing plane to the inside, giving it a clockwise spin (For right-handed golfers, of course). The little red arrows show this once you set a slice. In reverse, a draw occurs when you swing from the inside out, generating an anti-clockwise spin resulting in a right to left shot shape. True-Swingers will attest to this, since they actually have to alter the swing vector to get slices or draws.
To somebody familiar with the physics of golf - and having practised the game IRL - this is completely natural. And as a computer golf gamer for over 20 years (Links, Jack Nicklaus etc) this way of selecting spin on the tee is a long established, standard practice
