42 common errors in golf
and how to correct
them.

Topping the ball is very disconcerting. It’s tough on the score- and the morale. Your key is to keep the right shoulder down and under in order to get rid of those topping blues. If the right shoulder moves in a flat plane as the swing is taken, it will fly “over” the ball. That will raise the arc of the swing, and the ball will be topped. If the right shoulder goes down and through the ball you’re OK. How to get that right shoulder under? The best way I know is to keep the right elbow pointing at the ground throughout the swing. Try this and note in your follow-through the right elbow is still down and the right arm has not turned over. Right shoulder is well down.
