I've been on the lawn playing with this and trying to attain the 'position' but I'm not having a lot of luck/skill. Only a few players could ever attain that kind of lag from the info I've seen and read. Hogan, Moe, and probably a few other pros.

Possibly these guys could bend their wrists (double jointed) back to a position few pros could ever hope to attain. Moe's leading wrist is slightly bowed at impact.
The club never flips past his hands. Something else that Moe had working for him was the fact that he was left handed but played right. He moved faster with his leading side than the trailing side. Some players jump off their trailing (stronger) leg a little too quickly and their arms don't catch up to their bodies.(I've read that and don't know it for fact).

Unless I find some new tip that will allow me to accomplish this position I am resigning to making a sweet shot with the position I can easily attain (6/80) and try to duplicate the move on future shots. My son tells me there is only one thing that I haven't tried but he will start the car when I am ready to lay down on the driveway.

Here's hoping someone has the answer (raises his glass).
