    Hi Paul,

    I’m one of those who gave up golf years ago due to elbow pain. I’ve started back up after joining your site and I’m feeling that elbow pain starting to return. I’m sure I’m not anywhere near powerless arms yet. I haven’t been hitting balls, just swinging the club in the house. I’m trying the drill you mention above where I stop my swing a foot or two past the contact point. I can only do it about 10 times with a 7 iron before I start feeling it in the tendon. Seems like the pain is from trying to stop the club at that point in the swing. Am I somehow doing it wrong? Or is this drill not a good one to use if the tendon is already irritated?

    Thanks,

    Ray

      Ray,

      This is the tell-tale sign you are hitting. My arms feel like butter when I swing. In no way do they every hurt when hitting any shot.

      So you need to immediately turn your arms off. The you need to be working on allowing them to stretch out fully past impact. Watch:

      How to Release the Golf Club: http://ignitiongolf.com/impact-wrist-release/
      What Happens If You Don’t Release It: http://ignitiongolf.com/impact-what-happens/

      From this release point allow the right arm to fully extend into the through swing. The the left arm folds right arms is still extended until the both fold into the follow through where the club is splitting the ears.

      Watch:

      One Of The Secrets To The Golf Swing: http://ignitiongolf.com/secrets-to-golf-swing/

      Keep in mind that you are letting the weight on the club stretch your arms out to the release point. If you are going up and down hard then I could see this hurting your arms. Think of your arms like string. The club is a weight. The weight of the club should be stretching the arms out fully to this point. Again, in no way should this be hurting your arms. If it is you are doing it too hard or your arm is not fully healed yet.

      So don’t stop at this release point. From the top, let the club come down and through based on uncoiling your body. The weight of the club would full stretch your arms out through and past impact into the through swing. At follow through the arms would still be absolutely powerless.

      So go slow and don’t hit any ball right now. Also, get a brace for your wrist. Immobilizing the wrist will cure the elbow.

      Keep working on this in slow easy practice swings setting the positions. Once you

    This reminded me of my first year of playing. All I did was hit the ball with my arms in my practice room and on the range. My elbows always hurt after practicing. Then I joined your site and I haven’t had elbow pain since!
    As you know I still fight chicken wing but my best shots are when my arms are loose and my wrist hinge and unhinge. It’s that dang ball that gets in the way of my best shots! That’s why I like your up in the air drills, and last winter I barely use balls when I practice inside.
    I know I’m getting better with of your coaching because last week on the executive nine hole all three par, I got two birdies!

    • John,

      Yes, arm pain is the tell-tale sign you are hitting with arms. They should never hurt in any way.

      I like the up in the air drills. These are great for working on certain moves.

      Good job on the 2 birdies. The game is starting to get a lot of fun.
