Stop Swinging Over The Top (Feel The Difference)

Paul Wilson teaches a powerful, effortless, pain-free golf swing. Free Samples of my Body Swing book & videos here:

In this tip I show you a simple drill to help stop coming over the top. Is you stop coming over the top you create a swing path attacking the ball more from the inside giving you way more power and consistency.

Amateur golfers want to hit the ball solely with their arms. In doing so, it send the club over the top on an outside to in swing path. Couple this with an open face and you get a slice. So to fix an over the top swing all you have to do is turn your arms off. This is what I have taught for years. Unfortunately it’s hard for most players to turn their arms off so this is a simple drill you can be doing to feel an over the top swing. Once you feel it, you can fix it.

I would be doing this drill as much as possible so you stop coming over the top fast and start swinging on an inside out swing path give you way more power and consistency.
