So what are things that us mere mortals can take from Koepka's swing that could be applied to our games as opposed to restricting hips?
He hits it hard and out of the middle and matches face to path really well.
If you do that you're golden!
You can't take individual parts of a great player's swing. He matches his parts and makes it work. Anyone who tried to emulate that backswing and/or impact position is going to accrue visits the the chiro and ortho.
What amateur golfers can learn from pro swings is taking 10 random ones and seeing what they have in common...and possibly emulate one of those things...if it in fact matches what you do.
I don't know why this thinking doesn't get emphasized more. Koepka's swing works for Brooks and no one else. Yes, you can surely identify some good fundamentals but even basic elements of a proper swing will have a range of variability that will be particular to that player: their size, body shape/proportions, strength, flexibility, balance, proprioception, athleticism will all influence the swing.
