Ok here we go, now we can see a little easier!
First thing I will say is that you are controlling the ball throughout the swing. The ball starts at almost head height in front of you, then you drop it into your swing and it barely makes it to waist height back there. I would suggest you start the ball a little lower, somewhere at about your belly button height. Next is to continue to work on your game and allowing that swing to free up. Right now you are slowing the ball down as it drops, and therefore you are not getting a true backswing height. Allow it to flow without you changing its direction and you will start to notice a lot more accuracy. At first you will feel out of control, but thats a good thing.
Next, watch your upper body. As soon as the ball gets into its drop your upper body falls forward. This is typically a sign of muscling the ball as well and trying to "catch" it as it falls. This could also be an indicator that your ball fitment is off, most likely the thumb hole being to large. Our minds reflex is to catch the ball as our balance arm lets go of it and it "falls" into place. Resist that urge to catch it.
One last thing. You want your footwork to look as if you are walking a balance beam. Right now your feet are seperated on each step (left to right) so it causes your body to bobble back and forth. Watch your head and you will notice a slight bob from left to right. You want to eliminate that so that your eyes can focus on your target and the target will be still as opposed to the target wandering all over the place.
For being 3 months into the game you are looking rather solid based on your own skill set. Keep working at it, you will get there.
I will post a video of myself so you can see some of the things I have mentioned and you can compare from your own game to mine. It might help you out and you might even begin to notice things in my game that are "sketchy". All of this will help you in the long run.
