Try widening your stance to the point where you can fit two range buckets between them. It's almost impossible to pull a ball that way without coming over the top.
The OP is talking about widening his stance to promote a more U Shaped swing (rather than a V-shape) in order to hit less fat shots. Instead of widening the stance, I'd recommend practicing ball-first contact with a descending blow in your standard stance. I don't think changing the stance is the best way to get "less fat shots".
