And I don’t mean the ones you put hot sauce on. Every avid golfer knows how deadly the chicken wing is, and how hard it is to get rid of. Well here is a start.

Your left arm (for right handed players) buckles and looks like a chicken wing through impact and after. This happens when the pivot motion, the rotation of your trunk, slows down through the ball. The left arm folds as the pivot stalls. The way to fix this is to fix your pivot. Learn to hit the ball more with the trunk of your body and not with your hands and arms.

Here is a drill to help. Go to your local store and/or garage and find a nerf ball. When you get back on the practice tee hit pitch shots with the nerf ball between your forearms. Hit shots without letting the ball fall or drop out. If you to do this it will help you learn to use your pivot to hit the ball and not allow your left arm to fold up like a chicken wing!
