Video Golf Tip | Over The Top Cure
By Stan Sayers

Hi, I am Stan Sayers, Director of Instruction for McGetrick Golf Academy and today we are going to work on that over the top swing. Here we have set up a little training area just so that you can see the direction of the target we have a club behind the ball. We have this alignment club on the ground and here is an aid to help us not come over the top, a one by four angled inwardly back from the ball. Generally a two by four probably works a little bit better, it is a little bit wider and it is a little easier to stand, but this one by four works just fine as well. As I set up I am going to set up really square. If I were to take it away along this board I would be taking it away too far inside. I am not trying to do that. In order to get a perspective, the club behind the ball helps me understand where straight away is. I am going to start with the club on top of the one by four behind the ball. I am going to swing back and I will come down and practice swinging down from the inside and not coming over and hitting the board. If I hit the board the club is basically going to skip off the board and fall over anyway. As I set up I put my club back here so that I can make a proper takeaway and there is the way to quit coming over the top.
