How to Stop Topping the Ball

Updated: Jan 25, 2023

A lot of you have come to me saying you're having a lot of trouble topping the ball, and the area I usually see going wrong is that you aren't staying done long enough over the ball.

Below is a great photo, you'll see how he chest really stays over the ball at impact, then releases (a lot later then what feels comfortable as a beginner).

What happens with a lot of us as beginners, and also non-beginners is we tend to step up on it too early, so our chest points us

We need to keep it pointing down over the ball for longer.

Here is a great drill to try at the range

  • Place the ball outside the left foot and try to hit the ball

You'll really notice in this drill if you are popping up too early, so it is a great drill to to repetitively until you can make great contact.

Come and see me if you have any trouble!
