I've been Playing Golf for: 1 year
My current handicap index or average score is: 27
My typical ball flight is: slice 
The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: slice with driver, hitting it fat with irons.


Figured it was time to post some Videos. It's my first year playing so bear with me here lol. I hit a lot of slices with driver, I tried collecting it by using a stronger grip but now I hit it too far left. I know my entire swing needs help but I will take any and all advice.

So just by watching my Videos I will post my impressions ( other then it sucks and I should stick to driving the cart and not the ball) I think I move too much in my swing, I have a hard time staying balanced. I also struggle to get my weight forward.

You are reverse pivoting and hitting the ball outside to in.  Think about your spinal angle and weight transfer.  There are a lot of good videos and drills on the interweb pertaining to these matters.

Trying to work on my center turn. Still doesn't look pretty but I was able to hit some decent shots on the course today.

I feel like I may be standing to upright during my turn. Also my feet maybe to far apart.

Just re watched the Videos am I standing too close to the ball? Never noticed it before but I am thinking that may also be the case.

While watching my swing I snapped this still frame. I noticed at this point in my swing my hips appear to be rotated as much as my shoulders. Correct me if wrong but shouldn't my shoulders start rotating then the hips follow after? In other words my hips shouldn't be moving in unison with my shoulders.

Your hips are maybe 50-60˚ open there, at most, and your shoulders are 80-90˚ open.  This is not the issue IMO.
