Try this drill.
1. Grip the club normally but with the face 30° right.
2. Hit about 15 balls.
3. Film the last one and look at your hips and torso at A7.
"Path is instinctual" we like to say and I think that you'll "swing left" in an attempt to start the ball farther left. You'll probably do so with your hips.
If it doesn't work, abandon and just go back to pointing the face 5° right and making your normal swings. It's only 15 balls - it can't hurt you, and it may very well help.

"Path is instinctual."
For example, for someone who can't swing out to the right, we sometimes put them in a super-strong grip, let the clubface set up closed at setup, and tell them to "push" the ball.
They can know to their core that the "face" determines the starting direction, but I virtually guarantee they're gonna start swinging out more to the right too.
So, this drill is kind of like the opposite of that. :)
