From what I have learned that tends to come from the idea of constantly trying to play a draw is that what your goal is at this point ? Trying to play a draw on all clubs?
The last video makes it super evident on how low your follow through is as well. Hands and club need to be higher at finishing point to generate a better follow through (which generates more power). Do you have a full speed swing in there you could post with your irons?
It's sad you left out the word 'old' in "developed an man swing" yet I knew what you were saying. Hah.
I rarely try to play any shape but I know what you're saying about trying to play a draw. Think I developed this flat plane after reading Hogan's book and trying to play a draw years ago before I quit playing.

Like others have said your path is too horizontal. Try feeling to hold the the grip of the club and your hands just behind above your head in the top of your backswing.
I'm no pro but these are the things that immediately come to mind watching your swing.
You have some good things also like you're takeaway and your left arm staying straight on the backswing.
Yeah, backswing definitely needs shortened. Think that's developed from trying to gain more distance.
Whenever I practice a steeper backswing (usually indoors in front of mirror), my right armpit has a gap. I've always been told a glove shouldn't fall out of the armpit. Recently I've been told that's a dated notion and as long as you get it tucked back on the downswing, it's fine...?
Also, I read on here about squaring up with your ass touching a wall and practicing the backswing to not touch the wall behind you. Seems extremely steep...?
