I don't buy that Johnny Miller being the 'only' guy... if interested, check EA Tischler's work.. he categorize golfers into 3 release types - covering, diagonal and extending..... referring to the full release point where both arms are fully extended, which would also be the point of maximum club speed if player shadow swings without ball contact..... and the release point varies from about a foot past the ball (covering), to 2 ft past the ball (diagonal, tiger style), to club almost parallel to ground (extending, and Zack Johnson comes to mind).

it is therefore perceivable that player with later release points reach the maximum speed later, and possible after impact.

but to Tischler's point, all 3 categories are technically valid.
