    I really like this tip. I have used it while playing. If I pull one left, on my next practice swing I will do this drill a few times to get that feeling and that usually fixes me right away.

    I’ve noticed that a lot of golfers don’t seem to know what over the top means. I think it would be helpful if you somehow had a device that would show the swing plane. Perhaps a sheet of cardboard that would represent the swing plane would help. Then you could show That you were swinging over the top of the plane. Where as a correct swing would show one coming down from the inside and keeping on the plane. I don’t know if I’m making myself clear but I hope you understand what I mean. Thanks for the tip Paul it’s a great one and I use it often.

      Hi Paul, Watching you swing it looks a little bit to me like you’re sliding with your hips rather than turning as you’re practicing the hitting up strokes. Am I not watching the video correctly? Lee

        Lee,

        When you swing up your body tilts back. I wasn’t even thinking hips. If doing this is a drill through you may overdo it and move a little too much laterally. The point is to swing up to counter act the over the top. So do the drill to get the feel then if you do end hip hitting pushes just turn more to hit it straight.

      Glenn,

      Not sure I answered this.

      The tip I posted the other day should cover this. Maybe I will find some swings on my ipad and show the varying degrees I have seen in my students compared to my swing. Interesting.

    Hi Paul, This is a great tip—easy to do and it brings together all the other components of the swing.
