Drill For Keeping Right Elbow Tucked In

by Andy

Ok, since I haven't had a submission from anyone yet on this page, I figured that I'd get the ball rolling and give you an example of the kind of thing that I am looking for.

One very common problem that many golfers experience is the "flying" right elbow during the back swing. Now this example applies to right handed golfers, but if you are left handed, it would be the "flying" left elbow.

Now there are numerous training aids that you can use to help keep your elbows in, and I have reviewed some of them at the Golf Swing Training Aids page, but this golf swing drill is cheap and easy. All you need is a towel!

Roll the towel up so that it resembles a cylinder. Tuck the towel roll between your right elbow and your side. Assume your golf stance and setup, and when you begin your back swing, focus on holding the towel at your side.

If you drop the towel, you lose! Keep trying until you can hold the towel throughout the back swing. Pretty soon this will become second nature and you won't have to worry anymore about flying elbows!

That's it!

Now that you know what I am looking for, please contribute to the Golf Swing Tips page yourself! My goal is to create a sizable bank of visitor submissions to go along with the other drills that I have specifically created pages for. You can even add images to your submissions!

Also, my of my other hub pages, like the injuries, and/or the strength training pages also have ares for submissions.

Pay it forward and hopefully others will do the same!
