WHAT IS OVER THE TOP?
Over the Top is seen as the most common swing fault among high handicap golfers. It usually occurs because of the over-dominance of the upper body during the downswing. As a result, the club is thrown outside of the intended swing plane, with the clubhead approaching the ball in an out-to-in motion. This creates a pull if the clubface is square, or a slice if the clubface is open to the path. This swing fault can cause a tremendous loss of power and limit the ability to control the ball flight.
