All great players have two things that make their swings work: 1) incredible hand and arm action to swing the club on plane, and 2) a powerful body pivot to add speed. Some players are better at one skill than the other; Henrik Stenson is good at both.
This swing sequence shows how Stenson's arm swing and wrist hinge put the shaft in perfect position from start to finish. But it's his lower body you should watch if you want to take your game to the next level. Focus on his hips they start even with the tree line behind him, dip below it on the backswing, and then rise above it through impact. This kind of hip action gives your swing torque, as long as you stay in your address posture which Stenson does almost better than anyone.
Copying Henrik's powerful blend of body turn and a technically perfect arm swing will almost certainly be good medicine for your game.
