TAMPA, Florida - Almost like magic, the world of mathematics can appear in our lives at almost any time. Having even a rudimentary feeling for geometry and physics - the reasons behind why the golf ball responds to our impact upon it - making it go where it goes - is important. A haphazard, over the top, or outside-in golf swing is subject to the same rules of physics and geometry as the in-balance, perfectly-timed, inside-out golf swing. Certain key elements are necessary to make it all work properly to allow it to provide maximum benefits or results.
My primary objectives in golf may differ from yours. While I like playing matches, your preference might be for tournament play. Some play golf for money, others for glory, and yet many others just for the fun of it. Golf is a great game but without a solid swing the overall experience is a lot less satisfying.

Objective #1 is accuracy because attempting to score well from woods, hazards and tall grass isn't germaine to the program whether your playing for money or not. The OVER THE TOP GOLF swing primarily works toward achieving this. Straight is good. Are the physical and geometric alignments of your golf swing counterproductive? Don't feel inadequate. Almost 90% of amateur golfers need some form of golf swing optimization.

Objective #2 is distance mainly because using a shorter club for an approach shot almost always results in better accuracy. If your tee shots lag behind your opponents' or the others in your group your only two choices are to pull a hybrid or long iron; essentially courting disaster, or playing three to the green, a safer choice, however now a birdie will beat you every time. OVER THE TOP GOLF puts power into your golf game which instills confidence that you can hit almost any shot. It's just a matter of changing your set-up to take maximum advantage of your natural talents.

Objective #3 is the ability to scramble. This not only applies to golf course management but also you your golf swing itself. Just like getting yourself out of trouble on the course, you need to know how to fix your swing when it goes awry - and be able to do it quickly! In the case of the OVER THE TOP GOLF swing, there are just five set-up changes to keep in mind. Hence, it's a simple matter to correct your swing before doing too much damage. No lessons, swing coaches or golf pros necessary.

Conventional golf swings have specific requirements as to timing, balance, swing planes, etc. that, when learned correctly and performed properly, are a beautiful thing. That's why we pay to watch the Rory McIlroy's of the world. But these are difficult things to learn and maintain. For most of us, let's just say it's impossible.

That's why I created the OVER THE TOP GOLF SWING. I might not hit it as far or as straight as Rory but I hit it a lot farther and straighter than I ever did before and that's good enough for me. Would that be good enough for you? Well then, you know what to do next.
