Pretty sweet deal.  I used to be in love with the G15's after demoing them more than a few times, I never pulled the trigger on them though.  Sounds like you got a good fitting, and if you have the swing speed for a X-Stiff shaft, which I assume you do since you got fitted, he wasn't completely BS'ing about the 1 in a 1000 thing.  It's probably more like 1 in a 100, but either way congrats!
So the straight push and hook miss can be the same swing, but with a vastly different face angle at impact.  It could also be two totally different swings and face angles.  Hard to tell without video evidence of some sort.   Anyway, these are my misses with my woods and long irons.  When I push the ball it's generally a good swing, but I don't release the club through impact.  Not terrible usually, just in the right rough on most holes.  When I hook the ball it's...
I use them all!     Baseball for my driver, interlock for my irons, overlap on my chips, and reverse overlap on my putter...   As a kid I started with an interlock grip on everything, and over the years of tinkering I've ended up with this insane combination.
Concentrate on your swing path.  You have to come from the inside to cure a slice.  Take some continuous practice swings without a ball, and just concentrate on getting your path moving in to out at the bottom of the swing.  You'll eventually get the feel of what a draw swing is, then you just have to take that feeling to the range and hit some balls.  Easy right?   Honestly though, knowing the ball flight laws goes a long way to diagnosing errant shots.  Once you...
Seems to me like you could drop your RazrX LW and get a Vokey 60deg to use in it's place.  A full shot with your LW is 60 yards which you could do with a partial shot with another club.  Even then it seems like 5 is still too many clubs for 100 yards and in.  It would be too many choices for me, and I'd try hero shots too often instead of just going with the safe shot.   I'm on the other edge of the spectrum, I only carry 1 wedge, a SW.  Well my PW is a wedge, but...
That's pretty much it.  If you're hitting straight pulls rolling your wrists over will just make you hook the ball more.  It's best to probably get a lesson from a pro who understands the ball flight laws.  
The 14th hole on this one course I play is listed as 358 from the back tees.  The fairway goes out about 150 yards, then slopes down to the green, so it's a blind tee shot.  Either I'm a god on that hole only, or the yardage listed is way off.  My normal good drives are in the 250-260 range, but a few times I've ended up with a 10 yard chip shot left for my 2nd shot.  Or in one case I was hole high right of the green.   I think it's holes like these that give guys...
A straight-fade, and a straight-draw (straight being the starting direction) are dependent on swing path. So the why part of your problem is simple, you set up for a draw and then your swing path is over the top, or to the left of your target. That puts fade spin on the ball, and you end up right of the green. Get that fixed and you'll be alright.Easier said than done. My natural shot is a fade, I can draw the ball, but it's not a high percentage shot for me. I can...
I bought a TM rescue a few years ago and liked it at first, mainly because I couldn't hit long irons.  As time went on I got better at hitting long irons, and started hooking my hybrid, bad!  Now it might just be the hybrid I have doesn't fit my swing anymore, but I prefer my 4i for most shots in the 200 range.  I can hit my 3h 225 or so, but I never know where it's going to go.  So unless there isn't trouble around the green, or it's a long par 5 second shot the hybrid...
I went from a 20 to a 13 in one year by reducing my sway. It still not gone, it creeps into my driver shot all the time, but it's much better than before I got lessons.
