Yes... the more the arms/hands feel out the more forearm rotation becomes available and the more wristcock can be built in too

Do you think keeping the hands extended far from the body both on the backswing and downswing is a similar feeling?

Here's another good video from Bradley speaking to the hands being out front.

My take from this is the more we can be bowing to the 4:30 line and the more we can get the club on the tabletop with forearm rotation then the more the hands will automatically work out in front of us.

Spot on video from Twomasters. As soon as he got to the point of saying "out is actually down" I immediately thought of Jackie Burke Jr. and Steve Elkington on the range working on the back swing. Burke said, and Elk agreed, some of the best players ever moved the club away in and up, so it's not a big leap to sequence the reversal with out and down.
