How To Stop Topping The Ball

A topped shot is one that runs along the ground, it never gets in the air. The shot occurs when the leading edge of the golf club hits the top of the ball as a posed to getting underneath the ball. Topping the golf ball is every golfers worst nightmare. Not only is it very embarrassing, but it adds to the pressure of slow play and it can really effect a golfers confidence if they are standing on a hole where they have to hit it over water. Not only that but you can lose a lot of golf balls so the game starts to become expensive.
