What I see in a lot of Richards stuff is a backwards finish of the head that looks off balance. Sort of leaning backwards. I am not trying to pick on this player here just saying what I am seeing. I also see a crazy high finish of the hands. Also Trout gets leveraged and then he swings, he never shows the shift is the swing pattern.

He is off balance as all get out right here. I don't get it. This is just not a good thing.

There are quite a lot of pros who finish with a rearward lean - sometimes even Trout. It's not uncommon at all.
My DD went though a phase in her work with Mike that developed an exaggerated head-behind-the-hip relationship.
It was about developing a feel for what Mike was trying to instruct. In the context of her game swing, it's significantly less pronounced.
As for Haley's high hands, this is a quirk of this particular player (I've known her since she was 12), not something that's a part of the HLP instruction.
