Over the top

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Does anyone have any drills to eliminate pull hooks from an over the top move?

This move is started by an inside takeaway.

Find a yoga block and set it a few inches outside your ball.    This visual will force your swing to come from the inside.   A long cardboard box will also work.

I have tried this and the shaft in the ground at a 45 degree angle . Funny thing about this I never hit either item.

pappy, do you have a strong grip..? I changed mine from being fairly strong to a more neutral grip, which helped me from coming over the top. I know it sounds strange, let me see if I can explain. With a strong grip, my left hand felt like I was hitting a back hand slice in tennis, going from high to low, and right to left, i.e. swinging out to in, instead of in to out. I would hit big pull hooks, or full on hooks, even with my 60 degree wedge. Also, I use to take the club back way to far inside, I stopped doing that, and can now hit em fairly straight, heck I even hit a couple fades last night, which I've never been able to do.

 

It might worth a try to adjust your grip, and have a look at your takeaway...just a thought.
