How to stop thinning or topping the ball

There is nothing quite like the feeling on a cold winter's morning off the vibrations running up the club shaft and into your fingers after connecting with the leading edge of the club head with the middle of the ball. It's a feeling that all golfers will have experienced and that only the most masochistic could enjoy. Even though it's a shot that golfers rarely seek, thinning the ball does have at least two positive outcomes: firstly, it nearly always travels in a straight direction and, secondly, it often ends up reaching the target which in many cases will infuriate one's opponent. That said, the thinned shot is one that golfers strive to eliminate from their repertoire and the instruction and guidance in the videos below will show you how to stop thinning the golf ball.
