Simple issue, difficult fix. You lose your leg to spine angle in your downswing. You can see it very simply in the video if you put your cursor arrow right on your butt at the far left edge. Run the video with the cursor there and watch what happens going into impact and after. All of a sudden there is a large space between the cursor and your butt or left hip if you move all the way to the finish. Compare that to any PGA pro down the line swing video and you will see they never move their butt off that initial spot and finish with the left hip covering that same spot. They keep that spine angle through the entire movement and that is so important for consistency.

Practice leaning with your butt just up against the back of a chair, or stool, or your golf bag if you have a stand bag and work on swinging and hitting shots while making continuous contact with that surface. Don't let the hips thrust towards the ball. Or practice without a club with your butt against a wall, and make half practice swings again keeping contact with the wall. Keep taking video, so you can monitor progress.

It's a good looking swing, get this fixed and look out.
