Tennis Elbow in Golfers

I have been meaning to look up some causes of tennis elbow in golfers.  I thought I remembered something having to do with too much elbow flexion during the backswing, which I believe is also a big cause due to the rapid elbow extension during the downswing and at contact.  In looking for additional information, I came across this article below.  This makes a lot of sense – avoid cupping that lead wrist to decrease wrist extensor activity through the swing.  It all comes back to the basic tenet of keeping joints as close to neutral as possible.
