Does Carl Petterson look single axis at address to anyone else?

I mentioned this about a year ago, you will notice that on his wedges and short irons he looks even closer, but you can clearly see he is not SA:

I am pretty sure that is not a current photo. He sets up SA today.

thought the same when I saw him, but I think it is more a function of the way he holds his arms out straight at address (rather than letting them hang down). But the angle of the club handle itself does not appear to be in line with the right forearm.

Good-quality video from this year's RBC Heritage:

To be clear, I don't care one way or other. I think us SA'rs are always looking for a tour pro who is SA so we can validate our Sa-ness and prove it isn't that abnormal.

The video you reference is shot from above and behind him, making it a bit harder to see his haft alignment...but you can still see that he is close but no cigar:
