I don't have any emails to read today because I wanted to talk about a recent lesson I had with one of my regulars. During the lesson, I noticed that this particular Surgite was really tucking his elbows during the backswing and forward upswing. It was quite noticeable because he wasn't getting any sort of lift or vertical extension.
Tucking your elbows is not good. So, I'm going to spend today explaining why you should avoid it at all cost. It will really hurt your game, especially your ability to hit the ball with any sort of distance.
I'm going to use what I call the "towel test" to demonstrate the differences between tucking your elbows and lifting them. This was a test I first introduced over 20 years ago in my first golf instructional video.
Keep it vertical!
