I started pulling the ball to the right (Lefty) recently and I wanted to know if anyone knows how to stop pulling the ball?  I tried an idea where in the top of the BS I pull my arms straight down and hold back my shoulder rotation until my hands reach the 9 o' clock position, then I turn my shoulders with the downward pull of the arms from there.  Is that a good way to make sure I dont come over the top too?
Thanks

Check in the vault for "misses to the left". More than likely caused by overactive arms (sounds like what you described) or no rotation of the core to the right for you. Think more passive arms from the top and ABT.

 I'm a lefty too ( not that it matters) but when transition begins with anything other than your core ( & core can be many different things like belly button or a hip bump or belt buckle & so on ) you will have the tend to pull
 
 a core turn usually leaves the arms "behind" & promotes good lag & it's hard to pull it from this action

I pull the ball when I swing outside-in.  This occurs most often for me when I turn my shoulders too early.  One swing thought that has helped me is to trace mentally the path of the arc on the backswing and then try to follow the same arc on the downswing.  Because your backswing is square to in, you forward swing ought to be in to square.  Note a danger with this.  Your weight should shift toward your front foot on the forward swing, so you cannot swing along the exact same path on the forward swing as on your backswing.  What I focus on is the direction of the arc.  Hope this helps.  However, though, I am a 16 handicap!

Thanks for the replies guys, but I knew it was a path problem but I just didn't know what I was doing and my path on the downswing was square-to-in and by the time i got to my woods I started pulling the ball. I tried the shaking hands with the target thing that Tiger Woods talked about and that worked.  But I don't think about it that much, but I think about having a higher follow through, one that matches up with my backswing and that does the same thing so thanks for the replies guys.
