Today’s short is all about how to stop topping your tee shots. Our pro, James Whitaker, talks us through the problem from Reunion Resort in Orlando…

This comes down to two things. When you are making the backswing it’s getting too cramped up at the top so the swing is not wide enough.

So the hands, arms and club are too close to your head, as you are making the swing on the way down there’s a lean forwards in the shoulders creating a real steep angle of attack.

To fix this get some real width in the backswing, feel like you’re pushing it away from your head then you can really fire the hips through on the downswing.
