My Swing (HeribertoMaya)

Hello Everyone,  
Long story short, after a 3 year laid-off from golf,  i have been back 3 months,  replaced my entire set and now I'm actually hitting pretty solid again after regaining my feel.  The one thing that has always bothered me (and I know costs me a lot in consistency) is my extreme overswing.

Today at the range,  a random stranger approached me and told me about my "John Daly" swing and even volunteered to video me so I could watch just how long it was.  I accepted his invitation and was in shock of how ugly this overswing looks.   Since a kid,  everyone just to call me John Daly due to my swing and distance.   On the video, I was using a 6 iron, was hit around 185-187 if I'm not mistaken.

I would like any input on all the things I'm doing wrong in my swing that is causing this extreme overswing.  Whenever I consciously try to shorten my swing,  I can't even hit the ball more than 20 yards, with a horrible shot,  can't even hit the face of the club.  I have been swing like this since I was 8 years old and I'm now 34.....   Back in my 17-25 age,  I got down to 6 handicap,  since I was playing 4 times a week and had a practice station on my backyard for putting and chipping.   Any help will be much appreciated.

I've been Playing Golf for: 25+ years
My current handicap index or average score is: Current average score is 84 (used to be 6 handicap,  3 year laid off)
My typical ball flight is: High Draw
The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Toe Hits,  Hooks,  Blocks
