What drills can I do to stop my backswing from getting too long (i.e. butt end of 6-iron going over the top of my head at P4/A4) and going across the line (even with a flat front wrist)? How about preventing the hands going too deep in at P3/A3?

Sorry to say this, but there is no quick fix on this one.

A few things can help this though. First, is work on trying to keep your left elbow more in front of your chest at A3. The position of the elbow can help take out a lot of over swinging when the elbow works too much behind you. Next would be to just work on stopping the club shorter. Make a lot of swings, with video, stopping the club shorter. On the course it might feel like you are swinging to A2 or A3 versus A4.

A great feel that works well for a lot of players, is to feel like your trail arm stays totally straight. The instant you feel like it has to bend, STOP. Take some video while trying this to see if it works for you. 

There is a good thread on this, but I can't find it. Maybe someone else can link to it.
