... like the players who maintain their forward spine angle have to keep their trail arm bent, otherwise they would miss the ball. Players who lose their forward spine angle (i.e. stand up) have to straighten their trail arm or they would miss the ball.
IMHO there are several benefits to maintaining the forward spine angle and trail arm bend. Consistency and accuracy among them. It also seems that maintaining the forward spine tilt and trail arm bend will also enforce the maintenance of the trail wrist bend at impact resulting in greater distance.
There are some gifted golfers who can lose their forward spine angle and trail arm bend but still maintain their trail wrist bend until impact. Some of them can hit the ball a long way but most are quite inaccurate.
