TAMPA, Florida - In the world of golf instruction, there are many paths that you can follow. Choosing the correct one is the key to fulfilling your desire – having a great golf swing. Famous golf instructors like Butch Harmon and David Leadbetter mimic previous golf teachers in that they continue to teach lessons on the foundation of accepted methods. Almost all PGA golf pros build their instruction upon the same platform.

Recently, there have been changes in the landscape of the golfing world. Different and alternative types of golf instruction methods have burst upon the golfing scene. One of them is called OVER THE TOP GOLF. This new golf swing method was created by an amateur golfer whose instruction methods simulate the innate movements of the body instead of requiring the balance & timing so critical in the correct performance of the PGA-type golf swing. As far as golf instruction techniques go, you'll found OVER THE TOP GOLF the easiest to learn. After a brief getting to know you period, you'll be able to grasp the fundamentals of the OVER THE TOP GOLF swing. The results will be amazing! More solid contact, straighter golf shots and, best of all, an enormous amount of new-found confidence standing over the golf ball.

I had to create an alternative to the golf instruction methods that were available to me. The list of golf instructors who have littered my past seems endless. After each lesson, a bit of uncertainty and confusion always lingered. It seemed like I was missing some small, key element that prevented me from making progress. Compounded by the fact that golf instruction isn’t cheap, it's not so difficult to understand why I periodically contemplated leaving the game of golf for good.

To arrive at the golf course brimming with confidence is a very refreshing feeling. Somehow I feel taller and just a little bit more good looking than before. There’s a noticeable spring in my step and I’m just spoiling for a match. Even the club pro noticed my new persona. I’ve got game because of the OVER THE TOP GOLF swing.

Regardless of whether you have a tendency to slice, hook, hit worm-burners or shank the ball, OVER THE TOP GOLF is an alternative instructional method you should look into. To many golfers it might seem an unorthodox golf swing but it gets the ball into the fairway. It also gets you into your opponent’s pocket.

NORTH POLE - The golf season at the North Pole is short so people like Santa, his elves and others from here are very poor golfers. No matter how much they want to, becoming proficient at the game presents the same obstacles year after year. Everyone's got that over the top, outside-in swing path. How can one learn a proper golf swing in the course of a month–and-a-half golf season? And businesses that cater to golfers are rarer than scores in the 80s in these parts. Around Christmas time, consumers here don’t have a great need to update their lessons, equipment, golf instruction videos and DVDs other than to stock up on those orange Top Flites. Poor Santa Claus had reached his wits end.

Most people have conflicts involving business and family. That wasn’t the case with Santa. There’s Mrs. Claus, of course, but her interests by now are mostly trying to manage Santa’s cholesterol. And his work year basically consists of one day.... Well, one madcap evening to be precise. You don’t really think it was him who answered your letter in 1962 do you? No, Santa really should be a scratch player but for the ice and snow.

Most golf instructors are reluctant to travel 3,000 miles for a 45 day golf season so lessons here are practically non-existent. Santa, however, manages to fit a twilight lesson in on Christmas Day at Doral before the reindeer whisk him back to the chilly north. Therein lies St. Nick’s problem. Many of the elves residing at the North Pole are self-taught golfers but they routinely kick Santa’s ass. Every year his trip back home from sunny Miami is filled with optimism at how he would soon squash each and every one of those elves and take their money at the 19th hole. Talk about visions of sugar plums dancing in your head….

But alas, each year saw the same result. Mrs. Claus admonishing Santa for losing his hard-earned cookies and milk to those pesky and opportunistic elves. “The lessons are too difficult” he would cry out. “They are asking a 350 lb. man to swing inside-out, impact the ball with a square clubface and finish in perfect balance on my left side.”

Well guess what? Santa discovered the secret to the elves’ domination. The mystery of how a bunch of dwarfs were able to consistently get into the big guy’s pocket was known as The OVER THE TOP GOLF swing . Santa, along with about a half-million hackers throughout the world, had wandered right past the solution to all of their golf-swing problems. The ability to walk confidently up to the tee and smack a long drive straight down the fairway was now in the bag and man, would he make those elves pay.

It was actually Mrs. Claus who learned about OVER THE TOP GOLF DVD from a child’s letter. The youngster had learned the OVER THE TOP GOLF swing and began shooting under par. The child wrote to ask Santa for a new set of Mizunos so he could pursue his dream of playing on the PGA Tour. In this golf instruction method, Santa discovered that by employing just five set-up changes, he could use his own golf swing to achieve great results on the links - even with his outside-in swing path. And of course, by now, his handicap was up to a hefty 30 strokes.

The elves never had a chance.

PHOENIX, Arizona - Do not....I not practice swinging a golf club while standing on a golf ball. Now most of you are saying "OK, I can do that" but, in all seriousness, there is actually a golf swing method that instructs you to do just that - place a golf ball under your left foot to cure the Reverse C. For anyone who isn't familiar with the Reverse C, here's the definition from  Reverse C: A finish position to the full swing where the hips are dramatically thrust out toward the target and the head is leaning back with the spine also arched backward. My own definition is a bit simpler, a Reverse C occurs when a golfer hangs back on his left side while attempting to make a full, high finish. The arching of the back creates the appearance of the letter C, but in reverse or a mirror image. This finish position usually results in a slice or other unproductive golf swing issue. No weight transfer occurs therefore power is lost. The OVER THE TOP GOLF swing completely eliminates this golf swing flaw because, as many have learned, one of the features of the swing is a walk-through finish.

Standing on a golf ball is just one of the odd teaching methods you'll find in the world of golf instruction. I've seen golfers being taught to swing brooms, rakes and golf clubs with hinges in the shaft. Remember the scene from the golf movie Tin Cup that shows Roy McEvoy decked out in an array of harnesses and a hat with some sort of aiming device dangling from it? A bit over the top but the spoof illustrated how ridiculous golf instruction methods have become.

Proper weight transfer in the golf swing is imperative if you want to cure your slice. Sure, in typical PGA-style golf instruction it requires balance and timing. Not so in the OVER THE TOP GOLF swing.  Because of the unique finish position, correct weight transfer is automatically achieved. It not only acts to cure a slice but also fixes a myriad of other golf swing flaws including the Reverse C.
