Going to be turned down from there in varying degrees. He's on top of the ball now and will soon cover it.  Yes, normal.

IMO....Don't bother trying to emulate pro's....they're all different...each swing is ingrained based on their body makeup...and how their brain interprets the swing.

Check out how his forearm is facing upwards. That's the key.

I doubt it’s something he thinks about. Actually I doubt any good golfer does. If you have a solid grip and swing you don’t think about the “release” it just happens. It’s not like the face rolls open and has to roll closed to hit a straight shot it should feel square through the swing. That feel will vary from golfer to golfer as they all have different grips and swings.

Exactly.  Guys WAY over-think this stuff. The swing happens in 1.4 seconds....there's no way to think about anything...and actually "thinking" is a bad thing...it's part of why folks hit better on the range than the course...believe me...I have much experience.  I can't imagine in the 0.7 seconds of transition to the ball thinking "Ok...swing like Tiger HERE".  Lol.

Look at his right thumb, it's on hius rt index finger, it's not touching the grip at all.  I've seen this with Jordan Spieth and others.  At what point should the rt thumb no longer be touching the grip?

Again, you’re reading too much into it. You can look at a man’s swing but you don’t have a clue what he’s feeling. Tigers index and thumb will look different in his finish than it does in this frame.

THIS!!!

static pics are the worse to study... you see a hand position that the pro doesn't even know he does...it's the result of a lot of good things..before..however..you should look up lyn  blake and right arm/hand on youtube... he has the best explanation via TGM method

It's situation & technique dependent:
