Great to hear about your improvement Jim.
You are exactly right. You will always swing along your body lines. For your draw, you closed the club face a bit before your closed your grip. Assuming you then setup with the club face at the target. Your body lines, (automatically) were slightly closed to your target line (because your pre-closed the club face). Now, the ball will go where the face is pointed, but since your body lines are closed to your target, an in-to-out path occurs. The ball draws because the face is closed to the path (since we swing along our body lines). This is like "English" on a pool ball producing side spin. All this without having to mess with ball position or manipulate the hands. Once learned, the amount of influence (draw/cut), can be controlled easier for a more predictable outcome. Now this takes commitment and practice. Also, different clubs/lofts produce different amounts of effect. Much more difficult to produce a cut with SW vs. a 4 iron. because of the loft.
