Everyone is different, it depends on MANY variables and if you’re aiming for a certain amount at a certain point, the likelihood it’s right for you is almost zero.

With respect I think this is a terrible thing to even think about. You have to swing the club with the hands and arms to hit the ball. To try to micromanage the relationship of your hips and arms at the same time is a lot to think about. Just swing the club back and forth with your hands and arms and let your body, including your hips to respond. Do that and your body will move to facilitate the swinging of the club without you actively managing the process.

Different body types are able to get in different positions at different times. There is a wide range of "openness" at impact amongst top players, which means there's likely a wide range of of when top players' hips are back to "square." Check with someone like AMG (Athletic Motion Golf) or someone who has lots of data on tour pros various positions. Monte here may, or may not have that kind of data. Also, you can just go on YouTube and look at a bunch of pros' swings and figure it out for yourself, which is probably the best way to do it, because you will see the swings in total, and not just fixate on a certain position.

I would say in general, at P5 knees square. Like most posted above, it also depends on swing and matching up swing type.

 

I am a Mac guy. Below is P5 - CP on the left and CF on the right.
