Coming Over-The-Top in your golf swing is probably the most common (and frustrating) swing flaw a golfer will ever deal with. You can work hard trying to fix it…and end up developing other bad swing habits in the process. Why not put an end to it once and for all by identifying the two amazingly simple adjustments guaranteed to correct it.
1. Distribute your weight properly on your backswing.
When you execute your backswing, it doesn’t matter how well you did your takeaway, how soon you cocked your wrists, or how late your cocked them. It doesn’t matter if your right arm is straight at the top, or even if you manage to keep from overswinging. You must also be aware of how your weight is distributed.
You can spend years looking for the solution. I did. But when I found it, a light went on. You’ve heard of an “Aha!” experience, haven’t you? Well, that’s exactly what you will have when you discover precisely how to have your weight distributed.
2. Make a proper transition from backswing to downswing.
Now that you know about distributing your weight. Get this: It doesn’t matter how well you’ve managed to position your weight in your backswing. If you do not make a proper transition from your backswing…to your downswing…you’re still going to come over the top…every time.
You might think it’s hard to break old habits, like lunging at the ball from the top (which as you know can create a slice or pull hook), but it’s really easy to correct. If you know precisely how to accomplish it.
These two adjustments are essential to wiping out the swing flaw…that helps ruin untold rounds of golf…along with all the good money gone to waste for a few hours of frustration on the golf course.
