Great thread! Let's keep it going. Without Googling this and seeing the whole swing, what's going to happen here?  
 Many good players set up open or closed a little to compliment/compensate a certain swing. But 20-30* is a lot. You're probably hitting the ball far because you're pulling it, but the steep downswing will cause problems, especially with irons. Your swing is VERY long. What happened to trying to shorten the swing?

Thanks @turttleback. I agree. I'm certainly not above talking like a misogynistic pig on the golf course (or the golf forum in this case). And although I'm not your average politically correct guy, i apologize to all who are offended, and encourage other member to respect everyone. And if respect for women isn't enough for you, do it for the good of golf.
 A little off-topic: Please correct me if I'm wrong, but a push slice is actually very common, just ask my driver. The push part is caused by the open clubface, the slice is caused by a swing path that is left of the clubface angle (for a righty).
 Woah! I thought we were just having fun here
Odds that Woods wins Greenbrier Classic: 50:1 Odds that Woods wins British Open: 33:1 Odds that Woods will win the PGA Championship: 25:1 Odds that Woods is banging Amanda Boyd: 11:10   All odds courtesy of Ladbrokes (biggest broker in UK). Except the last one, that one I made up. 
 Congrats on breaking 90! The first thing I think you should look at is getting your weight forward properly. You fall back as you swing. Check out the 5sk drills on getting your weight forward.
Quote: I think it depends on the pro. No question that there is an advantage to in-person instruction - but with the right pro. I've had many in-person lessons and didn't improve at all. I've been using Evolvr for just a few months and have had a 4+ point drop in handicap so far. Glad to hear you're enjoying the game! 
 No practice swing can be like an actual swing - you're not hitting a ball. Unless you can completely fool your brain into believing there's no ball in front of you (in which case you should probably take up a more interesting hobby than golf), you will swing differently. Personally, I hate the practice swing. Most of us amateurs take way too long over the ball as is, and their "practice" swings just make it longer. Maybe it's the word that's the problem. It's not...
