First of all, that swing was posted on youtube 2 years before he ever worked with Foley, and the video itself may be older still.
Second of all, Tiger Woods is not a good model for anything related to the driver; despite still having a very high swing speed, and even more so earlier in his career, he has never been an efficient driver, ranking a pitiful 138th in driving efficiency last year. One of the best ballstrikers ever should be able to manage at least a mediocre rank. Despite having around a top 20 clubhead speed on tour, he barely scrapes into the top 50 in driving distance and routinely gets outdriven by a bunch of guys nobody has ever heard of on tour. He's not particularly accurate off the tee either but he supplements his fairways hit with lots of fairway woods and irons off the tee.
Finally, it's much better to understand TW's swing than to accept it.
As for the OP, your swing looks much better in the recent videos, though there's still some work to be done to get comfortable with the changes. My advice is to keep track of your changes using video and to make use of the instructors and resources here, since they can be very helpful. I don't mean this personally, but I'd probably not take the advice of someone who doesn't actually understand what he's telling you to do and who has no faculty in expressing useful information. Mvmac and iacas and Dave will usually be able to explain all the changes they suggest in a very sensible and clear manner.
