many bad coached on youtube its unreal.

youtubeguy says:

So simple …..its brilliant!

Thomas Thomast says:

Very good. Especially the part about dropping the right elbow.Just like my
PGA instr says.I would love to see it done over with more attention on
kicking the right knee (like Greg Norman did) to keep from over the top.
PS I finally took the pvc pipes off on 3rd hole, was hard to sit in the
cart that way.

Christopher Drew says:

Yeah, the plumbing is cumbersome but he’s still talking about swinging on
plane. First .30 seconds is all you need. If you swing on plane with the
proper weight shift your knee will automatically know its function.
Focusing on your knee for an over-the-topper just complicates things.

LionAndALamb says:

That’s the story of golf swing lessons in a nutshell: the instructor says
“it’s very simple” then pulls out PVC pipe, bungee cords, goats, chicken, a

Bill DeFeo says:

Great share here thanks for this

Tim Darden says:

This is exactly what I was doing but I was trying to fix it from the top
down (shoulders) instead of from the bottom up (hips and left leg). A few
practice swings with some balls proves this works. I’m an 8 handicap and
hit the ball straight or with a draw but I still had the tendency to come
over the top and pull it left on occasion. The problem was the left leg.
Thanks for a great lesson.

is there any way to do this without looking like a retard

David Breckenridge says:

Easier seen than done.

Rolling71 says:

This explanation is only half right. Most people who are watching this are
seeing that his hips and knees are rotating just like he said not to do.
Here is the correct explanation. As you turn on your back swing, as you
near the top, the first move is a lateral move with your left hip towards
the target. This move automatically drops your hands down into the slot as
explained in Hogans book. The turn o the hips to the left happens
automatically after the lateral move. It’s impossible not to.

Dom Esposito says:

“Nice Job” relating the correct connective flow of the swing “Bottom to
Top” …There’s too much out there preaching “your own swing” when, in
fact, there are principles and a way to swing that produces good results
for “everyone”. …The more who see your Video, the more will appreciate
what it takes to get the job done. …”Perfect Demo” and I’m sure Mr. Hogan
would give you a “thumbs up” … Thanks, …DrDom … Golf Nucleus .com
Thanks for the Video.

am i the only one who couldn’t stop laughing

bizzwoofer says:

This really helped my alignment in getting to the ball and making better
contact. Coach in this video seems really cool. Thank you!

kev pip says:

people laughed at me when i wore this on the first hole.

Saint Kimbo says:

These tips are a waste of time. Coming over the top is totally caused by
what the mind thinks is happening. The body will only do what the mind
tells it to Changing the mental imagery of what the player is trying to do
is the only way to stop it Proof is in the fact that NO ONE TAUGHT anyone
to come over the top, it is totally intuitive If no one taught anyone to
come over the top, why do a large proportion of Players do it? Because
that’s how they THINK the ball should be hit, and it’s WRONG

Saintsfanalways says:

NO! lol

TheViggeman says:

hahahah 😀

CodyLaBrew says:

I don’t care if I am coming on top, bottom, whatever. But you def won’t be
coming at all with plastic plumbing strapped to your body

MaxGravitas says:

Very interesting thanks.

Mox_au says:

@wolfe187 well, it’s been a year….how did it go? LOL


Look peope, you don’t need to go to all that trouble to avoid coming over
the top. All you have to do is learn to focus on an area slightly inside
the inner half of the ball and learn to swing through that point. You have
to learn to trust your eyes and your body will adapt.

misterfishisme says:

Interesting idea, and a great reminder to move my left leg first. Thank you.

dannyfr22 says:

Ting Yang says:

I love this video, it make so much sense!

Mrdarwinfinch71 says:

Very nice, clear, concise and complete lesson. Not too much, just enough.

Thomas Thomast says:

Absolutely what I’ve been trying to discover for 50 years and hundreds of
lesson. Now I can start 2 feet right and draw it. Thanks Every instructor
said up and down should be on sameline. Easy to do on range but on the
course being pumpted-up and nervous, it will not happen, Will come-over-top.

JeffPassageCPA says:

Interesting video. I’ve received instruction from some of the best pros,
but none has been able to cure me of the over the top. I can drill for
hours. But on the course, its over the top!
