Well, are you really having a chicken wing and are coming over the top?   Do a vid. Really. Every phone has a video mode, some shoot 60 frames per second which is preferable, 30 or even 24 are better than nothing.   Either do what the Pro says (search above for "stupid monkey") or do a video of your swing to get the right advice.   Best, H.
Do a video and look where you loose your "angles" - elbow or wrist. Really, shoot a video. Best advice to speed up the learning process. Start to own your swing...
Get a video - without one you do not see improvement. Getting rid of a chicken wing might be done in five minutes, or five months. Bad things tend to stick or show up again when you work on other things. Give yourself time to improve. For your challenge you might go hunt for quick fixes. Better ask a seasoned golf pro than try to hunt for snippets here and there.   Shoot a video and open up a My Swing thread in the member swings forum. You get quick help there. Otherwise...
Got a video of your swing online you can link to?
If golf was that easy, we all would have a single handicap...   Did you film yourself swinging (I did not search the forum)? I would suspect you hit the ground often before the ball (hitting it fat). With a 85mph driver swing speed you might be flipping your wrists, too.   Do the above exercises until you see your chicken wing disapear and extend your arms properly. There are a lot of good videos from those two guys on youtube.   Check out a golf trainer for a quick...
You luck with your challenge...     And this drill https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x4QOuP15wWA beginning at minute 2:20 might be another good one to make you happy... (extending arms after impact).
 Ooops, not that I am currently supposed to do other things... Caught a break, watched a vid, did not think it out... Touche :D Your remark puzzles me - would that be a 48° loft club head delivered at 38-40° giving it a positive attack angle of 10° to 8°? If so, what sense does putting the ball back so far in the stance make - wouldn't it move the low point further back and make hitting up harder?
Zack Johnson's set-up for a flighted high spinning wedge shot explained.     45 degrees of spin loft maximes the spin - hitting down -3 deg. with a 48 deg. pitching wedge would be optimal. And off to the range we go...
 Yes, right, will do! Isn't 15 degrees launch angle sort of enough for my current speed? At 15/16/17, 1700rpms and 125mph the total distance would remain 228y, the carry would only increase from 182 to 189y.  Hey, interesting - so there is hope for me being a decade younger! Do you know your launch angle? Are you satisfied with the regular shaft?  With the TrackMan Range and the heavy, limited distance balls I am not sure if everything is fully correct. I found a few...
Yes, Erik, hit it too high on the face and may have lost 2mph+ doing so. Plus I hit heavy, flight reduced range balls, too. They would not be as fast as regular golf balls (lower COR).   My ball speed on the TrackMan Range is usually 120 average in the range of 118 to 123 max. Smash on the TrackMan Pro unit with the same balls (and settings to normalize performance) was 1.43 and up.   Again, I promise to do better to the get the SLDR hot face upping ball speed. At...
