if you've ever struggled with elbow pain associated with your golf swing, then this video is a must-watch golf lesson on how to avoid lingering problems and injuries related to golfers elbow.
How do you actually get Golfers Elbow? The answer as to why golfers tend to get elbow pain at some point during the year is simple: Unlike what pga comentators sometime suggest, the golf club is always rotating and while rotation done properly is not a problem, over-rotation and hyper extension of your elbow can cause severe injury and pain.
Yes, tour players do strike the ball at square, but they also clearly rotate the club at a massive speed. What they do differently than averge golfers which prevents golfers elbow is that they have an elbow position that is down the target line.
If you focus on this key golf drill, designed to prevent elbow pain, you can improve your ball striking, increase your accuracy and avoid painful problems.
- With 80% of your weight on the left side, try to create a golf swing with your left arm - no golf club in your hand. The goal is to keep your elbow facing down the target line as long as possible
- As your practice swing is hitting the impact zone, allow your wrists to rotate and focus on making both your elbow and your wrist aimed down the target line.
- Do the first 150 golf swing reps with no club in your hand.
- Once you add in the club, this drill works best with an impact bag. Try to continue your practice swing adding in some weight shift and engrain the feeling of elbow and wrist moving down the target line.
Once you become proficient with the wrist guiding the golf club and rotating at impact, you will be able to increase your accuracy and elminate the harsh elbow positions that plague ameteur golfers.
