    Hi Paul
    Great tip. I had the same story from Peter in a video lesson only he told me to keep my elbows closer together on the follow through but makes sense to do it also on the back swing.
    Getting the feel of powerless arms and getting back to the ball pretty good, on the odd occasion I pull it but I guess that is the arms taking over, but slowly slowly!

  2. Excellent explanation,Paul ,of why it is so important to keep THE elbows (Widen THE arc ) ,which is rather unnatural for most of us .
    As for THE “brick “between THE elbows ,there’s a training aid which simulates THE “brick “,a bar which clipses on your upper forearms .I have it ,but I find it giving me an Akward feeling and I don’t use it any more !Looking into a mirror seems enough.
    Any comments ?

    • Raymond, I have a device that holds the elbows together. Works great with people. Just use it at home doing practice swings. Then it’s not as uncomfortable.
