Jeremey: RE: ROLLING OVER: It seems the torso and pelvis is moving which causes the shoulder and arms to follow their lead:: Is this a correct assessment. Don’t forget the shoulder and arms as in swimming could cause the torso and pelvis to follow their lead. Thank You for the tip.
The gist of this video was to help give people the feel of the arms “powerlessly” following the rest of the body. 3D biomechanics of PGA and LPGA Tour players confirms that the downswing is initiated with the lower body (legs and pelvis) followed by the torso, then the arms, then the club. Unless they are performing a “specialty” shot of some kind, it doesn’t waiver from this sequence. So in looking at your question above I would say your assessment is close but not perfect. The sequence is made up of 4 main parts rather than grouped together like your question above. As for the second part of your statement above you are correct. The arms can influence the rest of the body below and rolling in that manner is definitely possible. Having said that though, for golf-specific training I would definitely stick with the rolling as shown with the video for anyone having a difficult time feeling the proper sequence.
