Golf Ball Spin Science

Spin rates vary, but unless you hit the top half of the ball when striking it, all balls will initially spin of the club face with under spin. This actually creates lift on the ball to get it up higher in the air. And yes it is possible to have to much or too little spin. 99% of the time when a person hits any shot (excluding putting), the ball has under spin off of the club face but as the ball rises and falls back to earth and slows down it can begin to take on the properties of over spin.
