Tips On Golf Swing: Your Right Elbow Should Brush Your Right Rib Cage During Your Downswing

best golf swing tipsOne of the most significant tips on golf swing  is to ensure your right elbow brushes your right rib cage during your downswing.

The reason why this is one of the most significant tips on golf swing is that when your right elbow  brushes your right rib cage during your  downswing, it will indicate that you are in an ideal position to hit your golf ball straight.
However, you should not try to force your right elbow to brush against your right rib cage during your downswing. To be an effective indicator of a perfect golf swing, it must occur naturally.
Instead of trying to manipulate your right elbow to brush against your right rib cage during your downswing, you should focus on having your club face on an on line swing path at the completion of your back swing so that your right elbow naturally brushes against your right rib cage during your downswing.

But how do you ensure your club face will be on an on line path at the completion of your back swing?

The solution is to lock-in an on line swing path of your club face during your set up proceedings.

What many instructors and golfers do not realize is that when you lock-in an on line swing path of your club face during your set up routine, you correspondingly will lock-in a square alignment of your club face. all of which will lock-in a straight ball flight alignment.

Once you have locked-in a straight ball flight alignment, all that will remain will be to complete your set up proceedings. This entails you to  assume a comfortable stance to your ball, center the sweet spot of your club face as near as possible to the back of your ball and align your shoulders parallel with your target line.

If you then execute a simple golf swing without any attempt to re-route the alignment and path of your club face, your right elbow should naturally brush your right rib cage during your downswing. You should deliver a square club face to your ball at impact and produce a straight golf shot.

However, most golfers do not know how to lock-in an on line swing path and a square alignment of their club face during the setup routine to hit straight golf shots.

There are more than 100 techniques available in books, DVDS and Special Reports at http://lockedingolf.com that instruct precisely how to lock-in a square alignment and an on line swing path of the club face during the setup proceedings.

Once you learn any of these techniques and then complete your set up as described above, you can be assured a non-manipulative golf swing will cause your right elbow to brush your right rib cage during your down swing. In turn, you will hit your ball as straight-as-an-arrow directly to your target.

You should then appreciate even more why ensuring your right elbow brushes against your right rib cage during your down swing remains one of the most significant tips on golf swing.
