That’s great Mark. You were close to this position but I think you can still Use a little work. Everyone can benefit from working on this.
Hi Paul, I have been using a nerf football between my elbows as an aid for this position. Good idea or bad?
Mike, that is a great idea now and then have to carry one of those around with me.

Hi Paul, I used to have a chicken wing and at some point I realized that the lead elbow can’t be pointing towards the target through impact. Seems to me that the lead elbow needs to be pointing more down or towards the lead hip through impact so that the club can release and the lead arm can fold correctly in the follow through. Make sense?

Great thought. This is true. I will put that on my tips list. Keep doing this when hitting balls and in practice swings to get used to it.
Also, make sure you search the CURES section under SWING TIPS. I have 7 tips on curing a chicken wing.

Paul, I don’t have a chicken wing. When I take a practice swing,I have a good follow through and finish, but when I have a ball on the ground both my arms are straight out after I hit the ball. What causes that?

You want your arms fully extended about 2-3 feet after contact, then the front arm would start collapsing to help with rehinging. I would continue to do practice swings and if you use a golf ball then going slower. To get the follow through positions better. Probably start working on releasing the golf club better. You could have over done a chicken wing cure. Try these:

Paul Wilson is the greatest instructor!!! I have played golf since I was a child. I like to whip the club head at the ball, but my swing has some flaws. I generally hit straight, but have ball marks all over my club face. I needed help, but live in a rural area. I was looking online at clubs and thought if I could fix my swing flaws, I could enjoy new clubs. There was a YouTube tag that miraculously brought me to see The Body Swing!!! This is what I was trying to do without really knowing how. After practicing in the house for a week, I now hit dead center on my clubs without even thinking about the ball. Just touch the knees. After two weeks I went out for a round at 50% with extra balls in my pocket and I was attacking the pin instead of just aiming at the center of the green. It’s amazing how dead straight that ball goes now. No more spray and pray. It’s just hilarious. I love this system! Very good lessons and easy to follow!!!
