I love sharing swing thoughts that are sent in from the Surge Nation. It's a great way to practice the fundamentals of the Peak Performance Golf Swing in a way that someone may not have ever thought about...even me!

Today, I'm going to talk about the importance of a quiet left elbow (or right elbow for left handers). One of the worst swing thoughts you can have is to cock your wrists during your takeaway. Many people insist that I cock my wrists, but it just looks like that because the whole arm rotates together as one unit, so it gives the illusion of a wrist break. If you cock your wrists, it can cause your elbow to get out of proper position.

Check out the video above and I'll share a useful tip for always keeping your elbows quiet and in sync.

Keep it vertical!
