Beginner golfers often struggle with consistency, and nailing golf's fundamentals is crucial. In this new episode of "Keys to Golf," PGA and LPGA instructor Cathy Kim says that your trail elbow is quietly one secret to hitting shots on line. By keeping your trail elbow in the proper position, you can:

1) Eliminate the "chicken wing."

2) Cut out an over-the-top move that produces a slice

3) Prevent the clubface from closing down during the downswing

The key is to keep that elbow relaxed, as Kim demonstrates in the video above. Hit the play button to watch, and look for more new episodes coming soon to MR.TV.
