I never thought the right arm bend at address was ever really a problem, but someone please correct me if I'm wrong. I agree though, you don't see really too many pros with that much softness there.
Obviously what you have it at now is what pros do typically. Just enough softness, so to speak.
Yeah it just seems to help me feel I can take the hands back a bit to start instead of the hands wanting to go in. I don't know that it is really a problem either, but I just don't really like the idea of losing flex trying to go back in the elbow and then regaining it. Having a little less softness just "feels" like I can take the hands straight back until the elbow starts to fold.
