Should there be a slight inward turning pressure of the elbows towards each other at setup, during the backswing, and downswing? I know there should be a slight squeeze to keep them together during the swing. I tried slight inward turning pressure in my back yard and I notice that it causes the right elbow to feel like it rotates inward during the backswing (I don't think it really does - just a feeling). It feels weird and I am not able to get to the range to try it.
The elbows are a bit different for everyone.  One thing is for sure, the front elbow must be pointing back at about the front hip through impact.  It is better if the elbows stay close or kind of close (if you can), during the swing for more consistency.  Again, not everyone is built the same or can do it.

It is best to focus on the shoulders moving the arms/club on the backswing.  The more you can do this, the more consistent your swing will be... and a bit of a squeeze of the elbows can help keep them in check and help maintain your radius and arm extension.
