'Crossing the line'

Mike Hainline

Q: My daughter suffers from crossing the line at the top. She is right handed and her shaft at the top many times points to right feild. I have tried many things but have not come up with a simple cure. She says she cannot even feel it when she does it. Any suggestions?

A: Crossing the line is a "slippery fish" to deal with but is flexible. At the end of her backswing try to get more weight on her right heel, not at the toes of the left foot. Also, encourage your daughter to rotate both arms clockwise as she finishes her backswing, so the back of the left hand and the palm of the right hand point more skyward and her thumbs point behind her.
