So I come over the top, very outside in. What are the best drills I can do to bring my swing to inside out and fix my slice and loss of distance

Put a 2x4; with the tall side vertically, outside the ball when you swing. I am in no way responsible for damage to your club.


Outside in isnt necessarily bad. Work on closing the face so the slice turns into a fade.

As cnosil mentioned over the top isn’t necessarily a bad thing. The face and path relationship will dictate how big of a movement the ball has as a result. However if you don’t want to swing over the top, work on better sequencing and shallowing the club to come more from the inside

There are lots of drills and videos for proper backswing and transition.

Search the following names on YouTube. They have individual videos and/or series of them on the swing from setup to the finish

I'm not going to comment on how to make the changes, i'm not a good golfer yet, but making good progress. I will say that it takes a lot of effort and perseverance to make the change. I have been working on it for like a year now. Took more than 6 months just to solve for the inside takeaway which was one of the key root causes of my over the top.

You are gonna get a lot of different answers and all, some, or none of them may help. Not seeing your swing or knowing anything about it other than over the top and out to in is very broad.  
 

Some drills may not help as you may already be doing them in your swing and just have something a slight bit off causing the OTT move. Taking a lesson or 2 from somebody that can actually see your swing in person would be my suggestion over drills. They may very well spot the cause right away saving you time.

 Finding the cause is essential in fixing the problem so you don’t fall back into the same practice.  All causes are different too. For example @dlow206 mentioned one of his causes was an inside take away. For me my main cause was an incomplete turn in my back swing. Not an incomplete back swing mind you. Took me forever but finally figured out that I wasn’t rotating my body and was swing with almost all arms. This fix also added 10 yards to my distance!

Agree completely with Blackbgold’s comments above. It’s critical to understand your tendency. I tried coming in to out by shallowing my swing but what ended up happening is that I didn’t fix the core problem which was my right shoulder firing and positioning my entire body into an out to in position. So trying to shallow my club without fixing the core problem got me stuck badly in snap hook and banana fade world.  Finally what helped me was to swing in to out without a ball and really understanding how my body would naturally sequence that without the pressure of hitting a ball. This has actually worked wonders for me.
