It’s good for your game
About one-third of your body weight is in your arms, shoulders and head, and at 100 mph, a 12-ounce golf club's effective weight is over 30 pounds, so you can image the force trying to pull you out of your golf balance. When it succeeds, it triggers your natural righting instinct, which causes you to bolt upright. You can't stay down and through the shot no matter what your good intentions were at address.
Remember, balance is a self-organizing principle of your golf swing, so always swing to balance.
Four basic re-balance strategies are employed by your body, depending on the severity of balance disruption, and they're activated from the ground up, i.e., feet first. Even though static balance sets the stage, it's dynamic balance, once the club is in motion, that produces a good strike at impact.
When you shift your weight to your toes during your swing, the brain prepares your body for jumping, and these are not the motor networks you want firing while you are trying to hit down on a golf ball.
Keep your weight flowing by first loading up your right side on the backswing, then loading weight into your front side as you start down to the ball. And while you shift, make sure to turn. This shift/turn will allow a steady state of golf balance, which is the key to a repeatable motion.

This all-arms swing with very little body rotation is bound to pull the upper body toward the ground, triggering the righting instinct and pulling this player bolt upright.
Whatever happened to “finish high and let it fly?” Better for this effort is “finish low and holler NO!”
