The clubface is closed at the top of the swing so I'd expect the ball to go left. Get your grip checked.
I would like to see your swing from face on as you seem to have a touch of sway to the right at the start of the swing which may account for the occasional fat shots

Agree about the sway.

Also, with Driver - do you have too much knee flex? I'm just thinking in comparison to what I see on TV :D

ok i think the consensus is the sway for the chunks!

And yes about the knee flex with driver, i have trouble straightening left leg early, should i just reduce flex from address?

I would suggest you fix your grip and get the clubface square at impact first.
When that starts to feel more comfortable, then focus on reducing the sway.
For me, that's enough to work on for the near future.
The danger is trying to change too much too soon, you end up not achieving anything.
Fix the grip and hit the ball straighter.
Stop the sway to stop the occasional fat shots.
