Flying Right Elbow the Bombers Secret

Flying Right Elbow the Bombers Secret

Todays PGA Tour is filled with constipated swings where the flying right elbow is looked upon as a golf swing flaw.

A few top tour pros today still fly the right elbow such as Dustin Johnson and Bubba Watson (Left elbow) but if you understand the history of golf you know the great bombers of every era since Bobby Jones flew their right elbow.

All these greats let loose on the backswing and flew their right elbow away from their body. Yet today’s instructors teach to not do it.  This over complicates learning the golf swing for recreational players who would more quickly develop an ability to hit long tee shots if they were taught to swing more naturally and looser using a flying right elbow (Left elbow for lefties).

I say let loose and fly that right elbow (Left for lefties). The hands can create a much larger arc when a golfer lets the outside elbow loose.

Here is proof the longest hitting golfers of each era and most of the greatest golfers the past 100 years have swung this way.

Ben Hogan is the main exception and he was not considered the longest bomber of his era.
