Having your body "open" or rotated at impact is a goal for many amateur golfers. And it should be. Almost all tour pros get their body open at impact with their pelvis about 40-45° and their thorax about 30° open. This helps delay the timing of their arm extension which builds a better flat spot for more consistent contact.
Unfortunately, many amateur golfers don't get their body open nearly enough. It's not uncommon to have only a few degrees open at impact with their chest. If you are trying to get more open, it's important to understand the relationship between the arms and the body.
