Hogan’s continous hip motion Hogan’s hips never stops. How come?

Observe the hip motion through impact on these fine ball strikers:

It seems clear that Snead, Nicklaus, MacIlroy and most good ball strikers release their upper body around impact. The hips hands over the lead to the upper body. But not Hogan. His hip motion is continuous all the way into the finish. It seems to be very unique.

I am quite intrigued by this difference and have two questions.

How does Hogan do it?

And what is the significance of it?

Sam Snead:


Jack Nicklaus:


Rory MacIlroy:

Ben Hogan:
