I think the Ross Move Lesson Video explains what happens, but I’ll try to help clarify. Essentially, the “body” (I’m referring to everything except the arms/club) will control and move the arms/club. The “body” is swinging the arms/club. The arms/club naturally will want to fall towards the ground due to gravity, if you are not using muscles in the arms/hands to manipulate or hold or help the downswing. Now, I use the “elbows” as a reference point to re-align so the body does not spin out leaving the arms/club behind. So, on the downswing, the body is unwinding from ground up, with a sense that it will swing the arms/club back down in front, as the body continues accelerating all the way to the finish. The faster the body unwinds, the faster the arms/club are pulled down by the body’s rotation (while not using the arm/hands muscles to help). This move produces speed and power if done correctly.
