Not SW22, but again, you are shifting the burden where it doesn't belong. The one making the extraordinary claims carries the burden of proof.

For the record, you are saying this is 1) planted very open, 2) open earlier than you, and 3) "garbage mechanics?"

Which is another way of saying it isn't open yet.

Your claims:
1) he opens sooner than you
2) he plants very open

Both are inaccurate as proven by photo evidence.

He is clearly still closed at the plant. It is even more apparent in the view from behind, where his hips are pointing at 8:00.

Griffey does not do this. He goes maybe 8:00-8:30, then unwinds to 12:00.

Are you saying the hip rotation you describe from 7:00-11:00 is equal both in terms of position AND rate of rotation? Like...
