What's the difference between Titleist NXT and Titleist NXT Tour golf balls?

Definition: "Fade" describes a trajectory or ball flight in which the golf ball comes off the clubface moving to the left of the target before curving gently back to the right (for a right-handed golfer; reverse directions for a left-hander).
The shape of a fade is the same as that of a slice, however, a slice is much more severe in its left-to-right (for right-handers) movement. A slice is the most common problem for recreational golfers. A fade, however, is often a shot played intentionally and is even the preferred ball flight for some of the best golfers in the world (Jack Nicklaus and Ben Hogan, among others, preferred to play a fade).

Also Known As: Cut or cut shot. A ball worked to produce a fade is often called a cut shot.

A controlled fade is a hard shot to master but if you can use it you can have great success. Everybody wants a draw, but nobody seems to remember that Jack Nickalus played a controlled fade. Ask your instructor what he thinks and he will have you hit a few balls to see what exactly it is, and if there is anything wrong he will fix it, don't worry.

For a begining golfer what kind of clubs and golf balls are prefered? also does club length matter?

Yes, but though you have a good distance on driving, the ball still lose a lot of distance, because of your fade shot , the ball will land softly on the fairway and won't row anymore, unless you are using distance balls, such as Dunlop Loco or other two piece balls. On the other hand, if you can do this will the irons, your score must be very good, because the ball can stop on the green quickly because of your fade. Therefore, fade is good for hitting irons, but not for driver.
