I disagree that it does, and I think you're confusing your feels for what happens in reality.
Your sweet spot isn't on the plane, so you need to do something to get it on the plane. You're having to make an out-of-plane adjustment/compensation or you'd swing several inches inside the ball.
Respectfully, this is a square swing. The hands stay square to their arc. That is an over riding force. it is impossible for the shaft to be pointing at the ball with the triangle in that position and the hand plane remain square to it's arc. Due to that factor, the measuring stick you apply is not valid. You are measuring against a different type of swing. The triangle is still relative to the torso at the top, and it has changed form very little. There is a little bit of slop at the top where I let upward momentum lift the arms a tad, but I recovered at transition. Basically though, my arms remained in the same position relative to the torso and to each other throughout. How can that be a bad position? Watch the left hand and arm. The back of the left hand remains perpendicular to it's arc. I just let momentum hinge it from there.
I would like for someone to show me the compensation I am making on the way down. I can't find it. All I can see is the right arm and hand making a bee line for the ball.
