If you’re thinking hips to start and unwind, they unwind at a continuous (does not slow down and speed up) pace. It is actually best for them to speed up or accelerate slightly to the finish.

If you feel the need to slow down or stop the hips midway to let the arms/club catch up, you should watch (review) the Ross Move. It also may be that you did not wind up correctly. The shoulders must start winding around the spine first. It is like the shoulders get a “head start” at first, as you coil from top-down on the backswing. This will have you would up correctly so when you unwind, the hips can bring the arms back down. We’ve talked quit a bit on this here at the forums if you search. Short pitch shots are a great way to learn this.
