Three Ways to Top the Golf Ball

 

On the Downswing

You may be topping the golf ball on the downswing if you are letting the club come in too steep. You will also notice steep divots as well.

How to fix it: Try to get the club coming from the inside and catch the ball on the upswing.

On the Upswing

You may be topping the golf ball on the upswing if your swing comes more from the inside. This will lead to the club coming from behind the golf ball and catching the top of the ball on the upswing.

How to fix it: Try to feel like the club is out in front of you and a little more down.

Losing the Width

The most common way to top the golf ball is by losing the radius in your arms when you turn back. If you let your arms fold at the top of your swing, the radius will be wrong on your downswing, allowing you to catch the top of the ball at impact.

How to fix it: Create more radius at the top of your swing.

    • Johan–your driver has less loft and produces more side spin. Unlike your pitching wedge that has 48 degrees that produces only back spin. That’s why your wedge doesn’t slice–even when the face is open. If you driver has an open face a impact and with 9 degrees of loft and club-head speed of 90mph–your ball is 30 yards off line. Take that to 100mph and your ball is off the map. Get the picture. The key is to go my new DVD “Repeating Swing Blue Print” and you will make the change.
