It could be, it would be something you have to figure out. Though if you are learning on video checking the exit point is a good way to get a visual of if your club path is correct. An outside to in path tends to have the club existing before the hands do. While an inside to out tends to have the hands exit before the club.
I've seen another video of his were he if he wants to hit a fade he will rotate his hips faster in the downswing to achieve that path he wants.
So, you can do it multiple ways, just figure out which way works for you.
But he is correct in the ball flight laws. Ball starts out were the clubface points, and curves away from that. The only way to achieve that is to have a path that is greater than the clubface angle in the same quadrant.
Meaning if you want to hit a push draw, lets say inside to out is positive, then you better have a more positive swing path than face angle. So lets say 5 degrees inside to out swing path, with 3 degrees open clubface. When I mean 3 and 5 degrees, I mean relative to your target line.
