Fix Coming Over the Top
with Karen


Karen has a signature style with her Cardiogolf, Faults & Fixes and Golf Exercises with a Fitness twist all available on the More Pars Platform.

In this segment, Karen talks about a common Fault: Coming “over the top.” From the top of the swing, the most common mistake I see is people initiating the downswing by spinning the shoulders and upper body towards the target. This forces your hands and arms away from your upper body and brings the club to the ball from the outside. Depending on your clubface, the result is either a slice or a pulled shot. Let’s fix that now with this simple, yet effective exercise. If you have an exercise ball, grab that now.
