I was just told my Mark Crossfield (link) that they're different because they're using different lofted clubs, ie) Rory's using a higher numbered club so his hands lean forward more. hmmm.
Any other ideas?

Why are some players laid off at the top and some not?
Why do some bow their wrists and some cup their wrists?
There is no meaningful answer, other than "we're all individuals".
Thank you all for the responses!

Each iron has a correct 'lead' or amount that it needs to be leaning forward at impact for efficient leading edge to turf contact.
If you are straight up and down, like Tiger, at address on all clubs, you would have to find a different lead for every club at some point during the downswing. This might be possible for Tiger's skill level, but I would argue that the average guy isn't able to do that consistently.
Why not start with the club in its correct lead at address? You must merely return to the address angle when you swing back through. You can have one swing for all irons in the bag, not 11 different ones.

Tiger swings it away and then sets it a little later
Rory is way better....nah just kidding!!!
I think its just a style or preference, you might be able to trap the ball and hit it lower with the forward press. Depends on what you do coming down and at impact though.
shorter clubs more press-longer clubs less
