The back elbow (right for a right hander), will bend a little on a full backswing. it is not crucial that it bends, but might restrict the amount of shoulder turn in a swing that keeps it straight. I have a “drill” that demonstrates keeping both arms straight, only to show how removing variables (the elbows bending), can’t improve that golf swing… but that is just a drill. If something works for you and gives you confidence, use it. Golf is not about a perfect swing… it is about having fun. My method offers ways to make a golf swing more reliable and hopefully more enjoyable.
