    Regarding the right elbow on the back swing: I was taught that the right elbow should never bend more than 90*. Because I can see that your right elbow appears to bend about 60* at the top, I’m trying to get mine to bend a little more. Hope that’s correct.

      I don’t even think about the right arm and what angle it is on. I am more concerned about the left arm. This is because Iron Bryon does not have a right arm until after the ball is hit. Focus on setting the left arm and the right should be in position. In the past I have worked on this right arm and all it gets you doing it hitting with the arms. If you want to let it bend let it bend. Keep them powerless and focus on hitting it with the lower body.

  2. Paul ,You are right :JACK NICKLAUS was accused of having a flying elbow many Times ,and yet h

    • Raymond,

      Some people still talk about it. I dusted it off to tell someone about it the other. Just need a thought to get the guy out of a tricky position. It seemed to work.

  3. Paul ,What about the suggestion of putting the glove under the left armpit to stay connected until way into the throughswing?
    Generally speaking ,do you favour having the arms close to the body to generate more power ?
