You're opening your fingers on the way back and then grabbing the cue on the way forward. It's okay to feel your hand as your arm swings but you're prioritizing your hand instead of your arm which is really what swings the cue. Focus more on your arm movement and just let your hand go along for the ride.
"Prioritizing your hand instead of your arm" is an excellent way to put it.
I think this may be the single most underrated aspect of the stroke. Everybody simply says something like "cradle the cue and keep the wrist relaxed" or something like that, but it deserves a lot more attention. When I'm not shooting the way I should be this is usually the culprit.
