Elbow injury while doing bench press

Hi everyone,

I've been doing SS now for about six weeks. Last bench workout, during the work sets (at 175) the inside of my left elbow started hurting. It wasn't unbearable, but it definitely got my attention. It was gone by an hour after the workout. Today was bench day again, and it started hurting during the warmup set at 135 (180 was the scheduled work sets today). Very much feels like the descriptions of golfer's elbow.

Two questions:
1. Does this indicate a form problem? Seems pretty light for me to be getting hurt, although I do remember some tweaks while rock climbing a long time ago.

2. Does anyone have specific advice beyond Rippetoe's injury sticky?

Thanks everyone.
Life is good. My log
