The main object of the back swing is to rotate a very compact upper body unit around the central axis of the spine in order place the hands in the correct position by the time the back swing movement is completed.
From the very beginning of the down swing movement, the rotational movement of the hips assume total control over the rotational movement of upper body unit to return the club head back to the ball, square to the target line and at the maximum velocity you can achieve but to achieve maximum accuracy you must ensure that the hands are always ahead of the club head whilst it is swung through the contact area and into the follow through.
The only time the arms are allowed to move independently of the shoulders is when the arms are forced to interact at the precise moment the club head makes contact with the ball.
However during the down swing, it is vital that the hips totally control the rotational movement of the compact upper body unit to such a degree so that the club head makes contact with the ball at the precise moment the hands return to the original address position, therefore you must practice the timing of the action so that you can perform this most efficiently.
But importantly, from the precise moment the club head makes contact with the ball, the hips continue to force the compact upper body unit to rotate around the central core of the spine whilst the arms interact thus ensuring that the hands and the club head move towards the target area at the same speed, whilst simultaneously the hip movement forces the whole body to turn to fully face the target area at the same speed the hands are moving towards the target area.
As the hips force the compact upper body unit to rotate around the central core of the spine during the down swing /follow through movements, you must:-
1) Maintain the upper body angles.
2) You must watch the back of the ball until the club head strikes the ball.
3) You must also keep the head in the fixed frontal facing position until well after the ball has been struck.
