    Is this what you found just on their iron swings or on their driver swings as well?

      We see it with both irons and driver.

        Based on the comments below, I don’t know what you see. Perhaps you can reply to the other comments in this topic thread.

    Most I see do just the opposite…get lower on the trail hip and try to help the ball into the air.

      Do you mean that they flex their trail knee in the backswing instead of firming up the knee? This is the only way I can envisage a lower trail hip in the backswing.

        The hips don’t only tilt ‘up’; they tilt ‘down’ as well.
        In the backswing the lead hip drops because the lead leg flexes; and the trail hip becomes ‘higher’ than the lead hip point.
        In the downswing the lead hip rises with weight shift and lead leg knee joint unflexes. Meanwhile the trail leg knee joint flexes thus dropping the trail hip joint.
        Is it only me?

    Interesting… so the hips tilt during the swing and do not ‘level out’ in the tour pro swings.
    Since there are three types of dynamics between the ground and the hips:
    1.horizontal thrust,
    2.torque for the rotation,
    3.vertical forces that account for body weight and vertical lift going into impact; it only follows that the hips must tilt back and forth to accommodate all these actions in the golf swing.
    Trying to maintain a level hip rotation will mess up the generation and transmission of the forces and torques and would require ungainly knee flex actions.
    Those that advocate “quiet hips”, they are not promoting the pro swing, and perhaps are recognizing that most rec golfers have stiff hip joints due to a sedentary lifestyle and must compensate in their swing mechanics to play the game.

Yes, you heard me, one of the best drills we have is the battering ram drill. It is awesome for getting the relationship between body turn and arm swing correct, and improving your impact conditions. Enjoy the video, and hope this helps!
