Weekly Swing Reminder - Tuck Your Right Elbow

Do you have the old flying elbow or chicken wing?
I have had it for years and years. I've tried
to change my swing to a more rounded and not so
upright swing. It is not easy to do. But, my
buddy Rod finally got me to try it again and it's
starting to work. I feel like my swing is way
more consistent and I'm hitting some really nice
golf shots. Here is how it works -
Keep your right elbow as close to your right side
as possible. The better you turn your body, the easier it is to keep your right elbow tucked. When you take the club straight back and then hinge your wrist, your right elbow will tuck right against your side. This will take some time and alot of effort. Believe me, I'm hitting the range almost daily to work on it. But, it will get your swing more consistent and you will hit better golf shots.

Spring is just around the corner, time to get ready for the golf season.
Get out there and practice, play and enjoy this great game.

I am starting to figure this out here recently. I have found that tucking the right elbow in the backswing forces you to swing around your body. My swing has a history of being way too steep. I have not had a chance to hit the course with this newfound knowledge yet, but I will soon!
