You seem to be asking how dramatic should the drop of the right head be. I think your head will drop a couple of inches (have not measured this). This is true for Scott and Moe. Laterally the head stays over the right knee till the second video frame after impact.

How much you drop your shoulder depends on how much you raised it. You will need to get to a position in either NG or IMA where the right elbow is in front of the hip.

NG and IMA (and Sam Snead & Ben Hogan btw) produce a 'squat' position in the middle of the downswing. It is more noticeable with NG because of the wider stance.

"Tossing a softball" does not work for me (I wonder how he tosses a softball?). Side arm pitch or skipping stones (if you are Clements skipping stones) seems more like the image. I tried it, it worked well, but it hurt so I stopped.

For me now the shoulders are rotated by the torso bend/lateral shift. If you do these together to 'drop into' impact position (nose over right knee) your shoulders will rotate.
