That said I got that same exact lesson too many moons ago way before I was on TST but didn't understand it. It took awhile for my, for lack of a better phrase, golf IQ to increase to really understand what that meant, hopefully I really do understand it now but I digress.
I dunno maybe his instructor needs to head butt him (in reference to a recent piece going around on golf instruction) or something, ha ha.
If I saw my dtl vid after that 2013 lesson and my hands were still going out I'd try and figure some way to fix that. Use video and mirror work to do backswing experimentation lots of swings without ball.
I dunno how he missed Brodie's work and is just learning about it now. Broadie got a lot of attention in the NYT, WSJ and major golf publications, tv. I was reading long form articles about strokes gained in 2011. But imho he needs to learn to read greens better and improve his wedge game based on the info I read in addition to the long game. Maybe I'm not accounting enough for the time he has to spend updating blog, handling media, etc...
