    Pual, this is one of the most useful tips or cures that I have ever seen on the subject. I put the game away for over 25 years and since taking it back up about a year and half ago, I have been trying to cure this topping the ball scourge. Your clear advice to slow down, keep the head cocked, touch the leading leg with the back leg, and of course not looking up until your right arm is parallel with the ground is exactly what I used with great success. Golf has become enjoyable to me again. Thank you! I look forward to seeing your other video tips and cures.

      If you took time off it is perfectly natural to try and hi the ball too hard with the arms. I just did a tip on taking a break from golf here:

      Why You Lose Your Swing When You Take a Break:

      As much as you want to hit hard, really try to let the arms relax so they fully extend past impact. Think about it, if you start with your arms stretched out and you hit it with them contracted, your club will come off of the ground. By working on stretching them out, you will maintain the width of the arc.

      Here is another tip for you:
