Golf Tips Chicken Winging
A Chicken Wing is defined as a loss of extension or breakdown of the lead elbow through the impact area.
This swing fault makes it very difficult to develop speed or power and tends to put excessive force on the outside of the elbow joint.
If you're suffering from high weak shots or you tend to develop tennis elbow on your lead side, you probably have a chicken wing. The easiest way to diagnose a chicken wing is to use the lead arm line at impact. Start by drawing a line from the center of your lead shoulder to the center of your lead wrist at impact from the Face on Camera View.
This line should bisect your lead arm from the shoulder to the wrist.
If your lead elbow and lead wrist are bent and your arm does not match this lead arm line, then you have a chicken wing. This great article can be viewed alomg with many other great articles at www.tpi.com the fantastic Titleist Performance Institute website
