Fixing Over-the-Top Golf Swing Video.

This video is one of the best I have seen at fixing one of the most common problems in golf.  The over-the-top move or also known as outside-to inside swing.

The video comes from Craig Jones who is part of my network of some of the best and brightest in the golf instruction/coaching business.  Craig was with GolfTEC for over 11 years and decided there was a better way for the average golfer to get help.  He specializes in golfers with a 12 handicap and up.  This is one of the things that he and I share plus very similar teaching philosophies.

He also has an excellent Facebook page called Face First Nation Elite which is a closed group, but he would be happy to have you.  It's so he can just deal with the golfers that fit his demographics and also to keep other so-called golf instructors from confusing things.  

Here is what he has to say about the video:

 "When we talk about conquering your over the top downswing path, we’re really talking about how you want to deliver the club head to the golf ball. Since swinging over the top is swinging left of target, a great visual for swinging more from the inside on the downswing is to picture how to hit the inside of the ball. I recommend practicing it with a 6 or 7 iron and the ball on a tee because you want to make is as easy as possible when first learning it. Practicing into a net is ideal because there is not really any benefit to seeing ball flight in the early stages of learning downswing path."
