Description

Do you struggle, like most golfers, with a flying right elbow at the top of the backswing? From this position, you have to make some aggressive moves with the arms to get the elbow back in front of the body at impact or make other compensations. Learning how to set up correctly with the trailing arm elbow in the right position at address and how it most rotate properly going back will teach you how to avoid a takeaway that is too flat, inside and around and deep top of the swing position.


Video Practice Points
  • Incorrect elbow rotation can leave the club deep and flat
  • Keep the right elbow pit pointed away from you
  • Halfway back, it should point straight up
  • Without proper rotation, your right arm bends too soon and gets stuck behind you
