What is ‘Over the Top’

Any discussion about the golf swing is filled with terminology.  One of the most common I hear is swinging ‘over the top’.  If you have used this term, what does it mean to you?

It’s an interesting question and I’ll always ask it of a player who tells me that the problem with their swing is that they come over the top.  Responses vary a lot.  I’ve had a couple of players say they don’t really know what it means, but a mate told them that’s what their swing problem is!

However you describe it, ‘over the top’ relates to swing path and leads to the club approaching the ball incorrectly.  Find out what it is here, what causes it and how to fix it.
