Welcome to the forum @VikingHammer ,

See this thread below. A steep swing plane with the driver can lead to a lot of excess spin and movement like slices and hooks if you are still hitting down on the ball at impact.  I know from experience.  The camera angles on your videos are OK, but you need to move the camera back and use a real ball.  The red lines on the video represent the shaft plane at address (lower) and the shaft plane at A5, where the lead arm is parallel to the ground.  You can see the plane is very steep.

You should also take a look at this video: [VIDEO]http://youtu.be/aSvtawZYVuw[/VIDEO] And I definitely agree with @boogielicious about hitting a real ball. A practice swing and a real swing can be drastically different.

Agree with what @boogielicious and @billchao have posted. For future videos try to film swings where you're hitting balls, get a better idea of your "real" swing.

@VikingHammer did you see this video? Hips look a little "restricted". Are your feet turned out? Look pretty square to me, going to help get your weight further forward with effects the direction of the path, easier to swing out when the weight is forward. What you're seeing with the face in the pics posted is more of a reaction to stuff that's happening before it.
