I'm not an expert but I do have a couple of suggestions.

First, try moving the ball back in your stance. Having the ball too far forward in your stance usually leads to thin and topped shots.

If that doesn't work, try being more active with your right arm on the downswing. Have the feeling of pulling down the club with the right arm on the downswing. This will usually lead to the club bottoming out earlier. Incidentally, I belive that the opposite holds true as well. If you find that you are hitting shots fat (and ball position is not a factor) I try to be more passive with my right and more active with my left arm on the downswing.

I hope this helps.
