The elbows are a bit different for everyone. One thing is for sure, the front elbow must be pointing back at about the front hip through impact. It is better if the elbows stay close or kind of close (if you can), during the swing for more consistency. Again, not everyone is built the same or can do it.
It is best to focus on the shoulders moving the arms/club on the backswing. The more you can do this, the more consistent your swing will be… and a bit of a squeeze of the elbows can help keep them in check and help maintain your radius and arm extension.
