A water bottle, not only will keep you hydrated on the course, but help correct that dreaded over-the-top move in your swing.

  1. Grab a half-filled water bottle
  2. Hold the bottle in your trail hand and set up like you are over the ball
  3. Move your arm with the bottle to the top of your body like its your backswing
