That is the feeling i have in my swing with shoulder turn , with short irons i sometimes dont need much shoulder turn , but i can not do it without a strong grip . (cup the left wrist i guess ) rather than rotate 

Now i am not saying it does stay square ? but it feels like it and i def dont rotate my forearm..

ps , i dont want any abuse because this is just how i feel my swing 

i am a quite athletic 40 year old and can get the club past par with this swing , i prob will struggle with it when older i dont deny that :(

i have also used the conventional swing where i rotate my forearm  

 

It doesn't stay "square" and the problem with your analogy is that your right arm/hand is not "on the club" when you are slapping someone. They're not analogous situations.

 

I'm glad you have a feel that works for you, but as we see all the time, feel ain't real.

i said that was the feeling i get but ok , dont knock something just because it dies not work for you or you can not do it . if you could better explain it i am all ears as it is not the conventional swing

At this point nobody has a clear picture what "it" is. It's highly unlikely you don't turn your forearms during your swing so film a video and let's see it. Do one in slow motion ideally.

Seriously - let's see it.
