What really got me smiling when I saw these videos was that what they show is what I had always understood "supinate" and "pronate" were. When I read Hogan's five lessons, his use of those terms was one of the many things that confused me. He talked about how bad golfers rotated their wrists the wrong way, which made no sense to me at all. I couldn't figure out how to even make something vaguely resembling a swing that could come close to the ball when I did that.

Anyway, halfway through his discussion of what the wrists do during impact, he references diagrams that make it look as if supination and pronation are the extension and flexion that Peter describes as supination and pronation. I believe that Hogan's book and the diagrams it contains is one of the main reasons these terms are so misused. I don't think I'm the stupidest guy in the world, but when I read that stuff I was totally befuddled. I still find it confusing even now when I think I know what point he was trying to make.

Anyone who thinks Moe is confusing because he doesn't really do exactly what he says should spend some time reading "Five Lessons: The Modern Fundamentals of Golf". :-)
