Looks like Frank Proctor teaches this method in the video below around 3:11 (Not sure how to embed).

Not too familiar with him but seems fairly accomplished.

These guys leave out the importance of the rolling the shoulders to point your elbows outward to clamp the grip onto the gun. It's not just hand placement...

Is gripping it that important?

It sounds like you can completely limp-wrist it as long as your left thumb is pushing it hard enough. 
The cardboard isn't shooting back - so we got all day to line-up that follow up shot.

Every shooter needs to learn to do one thing and that is to pull the trigger without moving the gun.  Single handed, double-handed, standing, from a rest, from a brace.  Doesn't matter.  You really shouldn't need to compensate for a push to the left with a thumb push to the right.  What one must do is eliminate the push to the left.  Make the gun and trigger fit your hand and then practice.  This is not easy.  One can learn to shoot a double action Sig or a revolver or almost anything with a heavy (but not gritty) trigger even single handed and not move the gun.  But you can't do it out of the box on the first attempt.  Not gonna happen.
