    Crossing the Line
    Hey everyone,

    I've been reading the forum for about a year and have been playing golf for about the same. The input from everyone here has helped me tremendously as I build my swing.

    One of the biggest problems that I have been having as I develop my swing is at the top of my swing. I have quite the bounce at the top as I cross parallel to the target line. This certainly causes an instability in my swing and causes me to have many problems with timing and my position at impact. Does anyone have any thoughts on the proper position at the top of the swing and how I can work on it? I have looked at a lot of different swings and it seems that some don't go all the way to parallel and others do, is there any difference?

    Thanks for the help, it is much appreciated.
