Trying to fix right elbow getting stuck behind body on downswing and also thinking about switching coaches.  One coach is saying make a larger turn with both shoulders and hips to provide rooom, other is saying keep hips very stable and finish backswing when shoulders can no longer turn (much shorter).  Any thoughts would be great, thanks.

Make sure your hips turn deep enough.  In the DTL angle if you your a line, you want your right elbow to be in front of the right hip.

Then in the downswing, shift the hips laterall and that gives you time to get the elbow in front of the hip.

I appreciate the advice, but my coach is saying something much different.  He has me trying to make very little hip turn on the way back and trying to think about making contact with my right heel on the ground and concentrating on shifting weight to my left heel.  He is saying that my stuck arm is the result of my hips turning too fast on the downswing and getting in the way of my elbow.  Thoughs ?  Thanks very much.

I agree with everything he says except restricting hip turn.

More hip turn give you more room to keep the right elbow in front.  

More room for error.

Did Monte's first response video to the OP not play for you? That's some pretty solid advice if you're right arm is stuck behind you.

Any chance you have early extension?  You need to post a video because if you push your hips forward on the downswing the right elbow gets stuck.

Except that 9 times out of 10 early extension is a reaction to something that happened earlier in the swing.  It's a compensation to allow you to hit the ball better.

Practice throwing a football under hand in your target direction. It will force you to make Hip hinge room for your elbow first

Large shoulder and hip turn good. Using your arms to help turn your shoulders bad. I used to think I turned all the way to the top but my shoulders stopped quite early but my arms carried on. I try to just rotate my core without using my arms at all it’s strange how not using the arms is near on impossible. My arms now get deeper. Then the reverse has to happen I need to feel like my core doesn’t move but my arms do.

I used to unwind too quickly from the top leaving the arms behind. I’m not sure if this is any good for most people but my downswing thought is just wait for the arms. The only time  I ever saw my arms during the swing was  at set up and finish.

If your supposed to see them during the downswing would be an interesting topic.

If I think about both arms moving together (my arms tend to separate during transition) as lower body initiated transition and then extending them past impact, that helps me get r arm in better position throughout..

Also r hip deep but not over rotated...

Kinda goes without saying.  So what's the trace backwards regimen?

Hand path and steep shaft in downswing. Even set up with butt stuck out and too much knee flex.
