Golf Tip – Over the Top

Over the TopMay 19, 2016 Posted by Matt

Are you coming over the top in your golf swing?  Coming over the top is usually caused by taking the club too far inside on your backswing.  The only way to get the clubface on the ball is for you to compensate by leading with your right shoulder.  The result is an outside to in swing path.  One of two things will happen.  You will either have a dead pull or a bad slice.  Another cause of this type of swing is swinging too hard.  Your hands end up way out in front of your body and the clubface ends up severely closed or open at impact.  Slow down your swing and take the club back straight back instead of inside and you will have more control over where your golf ball goes.
