The ideal position of the right elbow and hands
BY BUDDY DE JOYA
course, some adjustments can be made depending on the issues that needs correction.
Upon address, take note of the distance between your arms where the parts of the elbows are. When you begin your swing with a one- piece takeaway, the right arm bends about halfway before it reaches the top of the back swing, the distance between the elbows must be maintained. Avoid moving the right elbow upward and away from the upper body. If and when the elbow comes too close and to the backside of the shoulder blade, it must be avoided, too!
The very key component is to hold the position of the right elbow (right-handed golfers), at address thru the top of the back swing, by rotating your shoulders and hips. On the forward swing, it is ideal to rotate the shoulders, torso and the hips altogether, maintaining the angles set by the arms from the top of the backswing until after impact. It is best to maintain until the very end of the follow-through.
This is not an easy task. But with dedication and a full understanding of this mechanism, it will make it worthwhile to spend a little of your time practicing this concept. Eventually, this out how the swing mechanics work your whole lifetime. It saves time and money! So, practice these drills at home for about 5 minutes a day for 30 days.
