For all of the pro swings I have on video, the hands are higher,
and farther away from the body at impact than at address,
which means that the clubshaft is steeper at impact than
at address.

If you have questions about things like this, go to v1home.com
and download their free software and swing library and
check it out for yourself.

It is not that the golfer IS LIFTING his hands: the momentum of the club is
such that IT PULLS the wristcock angle much flatter (uncocks the wrists)
from sheer force, straightening the left armclub as a result. So of course
the hands come in higher, since there was more wristcock established at
setup.
