Oh, I see… I think this idea could help you keep the elbows towards each other. I’ve never used one, but have been teaching this concept ever since I saw a drawing in Hogan’s book (from the 1950s) of a rope wrapped around the arms keeping them working as a fixed unit. I then realized, that the idea also helped the shoulders control the backswing, keeping the arms/wrists passive and submissive to the shoulders. One other thing this device may help with is, shortening or stopping the elbows from separating towards the top of the backswing and lifting into what I call “the twilight zone”… where the arms are disconnected from the body’s control. It is like the point of no return. Thanks Alan
