I think you are being a little tough on Roy.   My stock iron shot is square-to-the-arc of the plane.  My right wrist hinges horizontally rather than cocks vertically and I do not rotate my forearms in the backswing.  Going down I retain the cupped right wrist position and rotate through without manipulating the forearms.  So do I think it is possible and effective to swing this way?  I would give that a qualified "yes."   By qualifying my answer, I would hasten...
