I will say this, that makes me cringe every time I watch it. God my neck would be toast if I tried that.
Its possible her head tiling away and down will cause her to be able to drop her right shoulder in the downswing, slotting the club better. Its a very strange move, not one I would recommend or one that is inherently required to swing the club effectively.
That being said, she is a very talented golfer who has had success on the LPGA tour. I'm not docking her in any way. I would almost put that move in the realm of Jim Furyk's backswing, as strange movements that work for that person.

The ball is really a white blur anyone during transition,,you can almost not even watch the ball,,our brain will remember where it is anyway. Played good golf one year looking at a spot one foot to the right of the ball, almost focusing on the outside of my right shoe,
I will say that is completely wrong. Look at Anika and David Duval. Two of the better ball strikers on the LPGA and PGA tour in the past 15-20 years. Their heads both rotate towards the target, and move towards the target at impact and early in the follow through. I would say they are opposite swings of Ochoa, yet they work as well.
