 Mostly straight, slight draw, mid/high flight.
I haven't posted a swing video in a long time.  Working on right heal pressure and arm/shoulder/back turning together.   Feels pretty good, still have the tendency to get too quick on the back swing.    
 Ok, so a temporary fix would be not to tee it up on the tee box, then I can predict better the results. I do take good divots with 7-wedges, but I get your point. Thanks for the comments.
 I don't feel this is the case, I make good contact from the fairway and distances are pretty equal between tee shots and fairway shots.
 Yeah, this could be part of it, but I see the same result at times with a 3W and 4i, which don't take much divot to begin with.

 Amen to that statement.
Glad you decided to play more and enjoy the fruits of your labor.   Brad
 I understand what you are saying.  My goal is to be able to play any course and be able to not look like a hack.  What this means for me is solid off the tee, and solid iron shots. If your approach from 180 is 30 left or right, this is good enough dispersion, if you are aiming at the middle of the green, most greens being 20 yards wide (guess?) give you an error of only 20 yards off the green, that is more than good enough. I'm not trying to bust your ba$$s, just trying...
