What is the Ideal Ball Flight?

Ben Horgan was known for hitting a fade. But when Mark O'meara who won 2 majors asked Ben Horgan what is the ideal ball flight, Horgan told him that the draw from right to left is the ideal ball flight.

Horgan said that because the clubhead comes from inside the target line, and after it hits the ball, it goes back inside again, the correct shot would be a slight draw.

I agree with him. Because we stand on the side of the ball, the draw should be a natural shot.

Of course, I'm not saying you shouldn't hit a fade. But if you can't hit a draw which is more natural for golfers, you won't be able to hit a fade with precise control.
