Question: Should you tuck your right elbow in on a golf swing?

Your right elbow should be consistently tucked throughout the backswing and downswing, because that arm position will help you trace the proper swing path with the club. If you let the right elbow get away from your body early in the swing before trying to recover later on, it will be too late.

How high should right elbow be in backswing?

Let your right elbow move away from your side slightly at the top of your backswing position; this will increase your right elbow bend slightly and your right tricep will move slightly away from your chest. You don’t want to move your elbow much; your hands should move no higher than your ear.

How the elbows work in the golf swing?

Having the right elbow in the proper position at the top allows the trail arm to move externally and under the lead arm resulting in a shallowing of the club shaft. This allows you to deliver the clubhead to impact on an inside track with strong body rotation for power and control.

What does it mean if your elbows can touch?

Guys typically try to get their female friends to touch their elbows together to see how big your chest is. It’s just a way that guys try out on girls to make fun of them later on.

Should right elbow stay close to body on backswing?

On the backswing, the right arm and elbow should stay relatively close to your body. On the downswing, the right arm should tuck so that you can shallow the golf club. This allows you to rotate your body through the swing and provides a great position at impact.
