Ok so I'm a big guy and for some reason I cant get my full swing. My drive is about 235 but that's only to where my left arm is parallel. Everytime I go to go all the way back in my back swing I either top the ball or choke down before it. Any suggestions/tips for me? I mean I am playing a decent game but I feel like I could really open up if I could just swing through.

Have any images or video of your swing? tough to tell without. But this sometimes happens when I T-rex my arms and don't give clearance for my chest.

Like bossman said, a video would help. I would also assume flexibility may be a issue? Oh and welcome to GB! Glad you found us!

Topping the ball off the tee is usually caused by coming in too vertical or steep. But like the guys are saying, lets see a swing, we are more than happy to help out.

I tend to have a similar problem. I am not a flexible person and it I try to rotate to far I get out of position and hit the ball badly. I end up "lifting " my arms instead of rotating my body. So I just stop where I hit the ball best ( hands about even with my shoulders) and play from there. It's one of the thinngs Harvey Penick use to teach. Play the game within your body limits.
