Thanks much for posting additional stills from the Mike Douglas Show video. Note: To get to the video stills web site I had to eliminate the (>) symbol at end of the URL in your post.
To my eye, Mindy's top of backswing position in the video stills is quite similar to his position in figure 28 of GSOTF or figure 15 of GTTB, at least with respect to his left hand position which is facing away from his body. Though the video stills are not perfect, the position can be discerned because one can see the face of Blake's watch. Interestingly, Mindy was also wearing a watch in figure 28. I'm thinking he could not have achieved this left-hand position at top of backswing if he had allowed the clubface to open in the backswing. Jim
