Causes golfer´s elbow

Prior to developing a golfer´s elbow, the flexor muscles of the forearm were often overtaxed by monotonously holding something, e.g., a rope. When holding or swinging the golf club, during which the swinging hand holds the club slightly flexed, the tendon on the inner side of the elbow is taxed quite a bit. Wringing or screwing can also irritate the flexor tendons, depending on hand posture. The main causes of golfer´s arm, thus, are monotonously holding and gripping something.
