    A great lesson/demonstration of how to hopefully correct the over the top fault. Thank you

      Glad you liked it. I would 90% of all golfers I see come over the top to some degree. If you know the degree you are coming over the top you will know how much work you need to do to fix it.

    Thought your over the top series was excellent and this last installment really helped me with my short irons, 6 to gap wedge. However, when I hit the driver the process fell apart. I was still slicing. Do we do something different with the driver in regard to shallowing the plane?

    Just a comment about my own experience. I am 67 years of age and have an 11 handicap (down from 15 and hopefully going down to 8 as a result of your teachings). So I occasionally get “slightly” over the top.

    I find that in nearly every case when I do come over the top, it is because I am getting too fast (a bad life long habit) in the backswing and transition. My favorite video of yours is “More Time for More Speed.” Shallowing the club actually takes time and patience at the top. You may want to emphasize the importance of slowing down for those that struggle with over the top. If you are too fast in the backswing and transition, you almost have no other choice but to activate the arms and come over the top.
