2.Width of Arc

3.Weight Transfer on the forward swing thus generating Momentum

The first 2 I can explain in terms of physics quite comfortably, however, the 3rd one has raised some knotty problems for me. I am pretty certain that if one took 2 identical persons in physical makeup and technique with the only variable being body mass, that the person with more mass will hit the ball further. The formula for this I suppose would be p=mv - However my research has suggested that the answer is probably more complicated than this as there is a quite complex correlation between the following

Kinetic Energy

Velocity(speed)

Force

Pressure

being some of the interrelated factors

Also I am not sure if one can say that the club itself inherits the properties of momentum generated by the golfers transfer of Mass by virtue of being attached to the golfer via the grip end

Can someone please kindly provide me with a formula or equation that would prove these correlations and the fact that extra mass would increase force applied to the ball by the golf clubhead in the scenario I have mentioned above.
