Perfect timing Paul. Actually video taped my swing yesterday and it showed that I had this flaw. This is really a tough game to learn – always something to work on!
It is actually a very simple movement but simple is difficult. You just have to overcome human nature and you will be just fine. This means you will have to do things you don’t want to do. Understand the logic. Understand the move. Then no matter how uncomfortable it feels keeps doing it until it feels comfortable. Then move on to the next position and so on. You should have the follow through looking good by now. The backswing is going to be tough for you. Keep working in the mirror so you can check it every night. This way you won’t get off track.

Paul I have been hitting the ball more on the toe on my irons sw-5 iron
It is a 1/4 inch to the toe. I have started lining my club face closer
to the hosal and get solid contact and straight ball flight. I know
this not the proper cure! Help? 😀
If you are hitting the toe you are raising up through impact. In doing so the club pulls inwards a little. You are too anxious trying to see the result.
Just work on relaxing the arms and this position and you will be fine.

This is a major flaw I need to fix but the server that has this video is too slow! Is there any alternative way of watching it? Thanks!
JP, I will look into moving this tip. Right now it is on the Amazon Cloud server which is used by thousands of large companies so there should not be a problem with it but I have heard from people in remote areas that some videos are slow. I will put it on my to do list.

i do hit decent shots, even fat, but i know getting rid of the chicken wing is gonna give me the “hands ahead of ball” at impact and more lenght. somehow i must have adopted my swing to the chicken wing but when i tape myself on video i get sick of that sight 😀 hope your 8 tips will help me!!!
If it was me I would be sickened too. I find it truly mind boggling that so many people do this and know they do it yet don’t even work on it. I would literally be sitting there doing thousands of swing stretching my arms out after impact. I would also hit easy shots so I knew for a fact that they were both dead straight just after impact. Then once I got the feeling I would speed it up.
Here are a couple more you should watch:

Another Reason To Do The Roll Over Drill: https://ignitiongolf.com/another-reason-to-roll/
So stay focused on this. Do whatever it takes and like I said do it slow to make 100% sure you are extending both arms after the ball is hit.

New to your swing style. So far loving it.
I’m struggling with what I think is chicken winging but may just be a result not the root.
On video what I notice is my hips stall at impact and I chicken wing. I’m hitting a lot of thins and big hooks of the toe. Would love some support!
Also with your online coaching. Is there a way for us to schedule a time to video chat or is it only random?

Sounds a lot like you are using your hands and arms to hit shots, this is very common. Tighter you are with your hands and arms, you will start hitting the thin shots. First work on these areas; grip (sounds like you have a strong grip), loosen up the arms (roll-over drill) then work on some follow through positions. Check out these tips:
