He's doing that because he's Mac-like. HIs hips and shoulders are square - he just drops the right foot back a little. Mac does that for both of his patterns, IIRC. It's important to note that your feet can be set one way while your hips and shoulders are set another way. Like Zach, like Mac, and like other people whose names don't rhyme.

 

I often find it easier to hit a push-draw with an open stance. My body senses that the target is "out to the right" a little and will swing out in that direction more. Some people do as you do - they swing more along their body lines.

I actually caught a cool double image on this one. Zach Johnson at impact, and slightly after. 

From watching his driver swing, I think he comes very close to hitting the ball at zero angle of attack, or marginally upward. His ball placement isn't that far forward, but he does stay behind the ball a lot, and he gets huge extension with his arms, which is seen by his classic holding that triangle into the finish. Really raising the grip towards the sky, not letting that butt end of the club to get pointing towards the ground.

Great image!  Thanks for sharing that!
