Swing looks pretty good for 3months.  Your coach is right on.  Looks like you've got the basics but now you need practice to get the feel.  One thing I want to point out that your doing that I used to do when I first started is leaning forward on the back swing.  It really helped my swing when I stopped leaning forward.  There is evidence of this in your video with your head moving forward.  You want to feel like your pushing your butt into the ground almost and loading...
You need to stop extending your right leg all the way on the backswing.  Keep some flex in it.  This is the reason why your left knee bends so much because it looks like your almost, if not locking your right knee completely on your backswing forcing your left knee to drop lower and throwing your whole body off.
Your swing does not flow.  What you are doing in your backswing is completely wrong so in order for you to make contact at the ball, you have to use your arms & hands to bring the club back on plane right at impact.  You may hit the ball sometimes because you time it right and are able to bring the club back to plane right before or right at impact but it will NEVER become very consistent.  Your problem is not distance right now, it is your swing.  If you fix your swing,...
The Tour Edge XCG Exotics 3 wood is amazingly nice to hit.  Just feels like it hits itself.  It could use an upgrade on the shaft but some reason swings so smoothly from the factory.
If your ball flight is straight then way right then that means your path and clubface is off at impact.  This ball flight exactly means you have an open clubface and an outside-in swing path to compensate or vice versa.  That is why the ball goes straight for a little bit then the spin takes it right.  Start slow and get hitting it straight, even like 100yds - 150yds just straight and build it up.  Post a video and I will tell you for sure.
Also, your head movement right now is your body compensating so at impact, your clubhead makes contact with the ball.  Head movement is often a symptom of poor swing mechanics because your body is compensating and your using your arms just to get the club back on plane and the point of impact.  If the rest of your swing is correct, it is easy to keep your head still.  Do what I told you and I guarentee it will solve 90% of your problems.  You might not even hit the ball...
This might help.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=10FJTAaGNVU  I've watched almost all of his videos to see his teaching techniques and must recommend to anyone.
Like I said in my earlier post, your backswing is still way off.  You are pulling the club behind you right now.  To get a feeling of what is correct, literally just pull the club straight to the right on your upswing until you can't reach then start going up.  It will probably be exaggerated but that is the only way to get the feeling and fix what you're doing.  Once you do it a few times you will be able to feel the clubhead fall into the slot/on plane during your...
From experience, your problem is your upswing.  None of the rest matters if that isn't correct.  It is hard to see from this angle and would be obvious with a down the line angle.  You are pulling the club inside on your upswing and lifting your head.  Your arc is very very small and your swing is all arms/hands right now.  To fix this, you need to add width to your arc.  To do this, pull your club straight back from the ball (parallel to your feet and on the target...
