<p>The DTL video is not very good as you can&#39;t see my clubface. I am struggling bad with consistency, I recently identified that my right hand was coming off the grip at the top and fixed that. Now, I can&#39;t do anything!! Drills or input would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

As far as smothering goes i actually think u could stand a shade closer to the ball based on how your arms hang. Jmo. Well if your push hooking the ball we know your swingpath is inside out and the face is closed to that path imparting draw spin. I did also notice that left wrist maybe quite bowed at the at the top and on the way down. Since your stuggling with a hook maybe strive to keep the left wrist flatter at the top. minimizing the bow on the way down will eliminate how shut the club is. The left wrist is supposed hinge to the side, not fold.  The right hand is supposed to fold, following the left.
     Swingers have very passive right hands. Hitters push down more with the right; and turn over the club more actively with the right hand. What ever works better for you. You can have right or left handed clubhead control; or a bit of both. I tend to focus on one or the other; getting a feel for how turned over it needs be through impact;  depending on my desired shot shape.

When u say smothered it got me thinking. Maybe your getting the club stuck inside behind you. If that the feeling. Slow your hips down and let the hands and shoulders catchup. Turn your hips, chest, and hands more as a unit through impact.
