Excellent site!

Looking at the supination movie, this along with an adduction and then abduction is what I mean by 'release' in terms of left hand motion.

Interesting that none of the movies would indicate a range of motion in the wrist that would allow it to extend past (or begin flexion before) the wrist being horizontal ('flat'). Yet this 'cuppping' (Hogan 'pronation') is I think the cause of a lot of golf problems.

You will need to 'translate' to be able to understand what people like Hogan meant. Hogan used the term 'supinated' to indicate a position as opposed to a movement (or maybe he meant both but the diagram and some of the text indicate a position).

Since you have the interest you should also get The Golf Machine. The photos are not as good as the movies at the web site but the site does not show static positions (e.g. Hogan's 'supinated').

If you 'extend' (from the web site) your wrist past horizontal, what position are your in? If you stop the motion before horizontal, what position are you in? TGM has definitions for all of these positions. There may be a site like the one you found that has these other definitions as well. You have encouraged me to search. I am interested in the medical/kinesiology definitions vs. the TGM definitions.
