There are a lot of reasons someone goes past parallel, and without seeing a swing it's just a guess.

Club loose in your hands, arms collapsing, or maybe you're just really flexible.

Get a SwingGyde, no drills, just the best training aid ever.  Unless your Gumby, you will never go past parallel with one of these!

If you consider that the arms raise as the shoulders turn (as opposed to them swinging back and up independently), then it'll be very difficult to over-swing.

Check out this video that's been posted many times here before:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_JES-8I-VAk

This notion has really changed my ball striking for the better.  My swing has gotten on plane, and I no longer over-swing.

Might want to give it a whirl.  It might take you a session or two to incorporate into your swing, but it makes the back swing a whole lot simpler.
