Member Question - Taking Hips Out Of The Swing

There have been a few Youtube videos within the last 6 months discussing the role of the hips in power/speed production. In these videos, several instructors have stated that you can "remove" the hips from the swing and only experience a 10-15% reduction in clubhead speed. While the amount of speed loss does appear to be accurate, a kneeling posture does not completely remove your hips from the equation. Therefore, we would have to make a few modification to truly test this theory. Nonetheless, the hips play a big role in power production/sequencing and a lot of great golfers (and athletes in general) tend to work "from the ground up" when it comes to performance.
