Looking at the front view, I see that my left arm bends a lot during the last part of the backswing.  Then, when I start down, that left arm forcibly straightens and the force of that straightening motion throws the clubhead away from my body, which destroys the wrist cock.  The club head then releases too soon and I have to stand up to get it to the ball.

Would I be better off just learning to stop the backswing when my lead shoulder touches my chin?  I've tried in the past to stop the left arm from breaking so much, but at this time, it's really unconscious.  Should learning to limit the back swing be a priority for the off season?

Flare both feet out at address, bow the knees out a little.  Will help the knees change flex so the hips can turn, right side can "stretch" more, allowing the head to stay steady.  Left foot being turned out will also help get more weight forward at impact.

Thanks for the feedback.  I look forward to working on this change.

I can see how my torso stops turning and my arms keep going, which seems rather pointless and destructive.
