Paul ,You said the release was the main factor of the clubhead speed :the later the release ,the more clubhead speed is generated.How do you keep the angle between the left arm and the shaft closed the longest possible?

You do this by keeping your wrists loose and turning your body (axis) first in the downswing. What does lag mean? It means something is trailing behind something else. In a golf swing the mass (club) is trailing behind the axis (body). The faster you turn the axis the more lag will be created. I know people will never be as loose as I want them just by loosening up so there are tons of lag drills on this site. Just go through them. Work on them. When you do you will be manually using your arms to hold and set these positions. Once you have done it long enough you turn your arms back off and the club will lag all on its own.
How does a little kid perfectly lag it without ever having a lesson on this this yet no adults lag it perfectly? ANSWER: The kids arms have no power in them. They have no choice but to lag it.

Glad you liked it. Something no one even thinks about but vital.
I am having trouble with my hips gluing through too fast which makes me hook the ball. Have you any suggestions too help me. Thanking you Kerry Nicholson
This doesn’t make you hook the ball. This would create a slide which would push the ball out to the right. It would hook do to a faulty grip. So you need to fix your grip first. Then you need to cure the slide but turning more.

And, why don’t you just slow down? Get it then speed it up.
Is the release automatic or should we thoughtfully release the club in an effort to get to that 3/4 position and see three back of our hand.
If your arms were powerless you would be release it automatically. I would think yours are not so you need to manually hook it until you master the release. I have done tons of tips on this. Just follow them:

The problem I have is that if I just use my lower body and just let my arms and wrists go I will end up with club face closed and the ball will just shoot off to the left bouncing on the ground. It seems like I can’t find that happy middle ground where I am not killing my left forearm holding too tight and tight enough to control the club better. Any suggestions?
If you are doing what you say you would have to have a strong grip. Loose wrists + strong grip = big hooks
Strong Grip Stops The Release: https://ignitiongolf.com/strong-grip-stops-release/
So you need to start with your grip first. Work on a neutral grip. Then you will actually see what you are doing to the ball. Then you can fix it. I guarantee if you fix your grip you will hit pushes and push fade for the first while. With this new grip you can work on the release.
If you are doing roll over drills to purposely get it hooking it is a drill not reality. You are not trying to hit great shots. Instead, you are trying to hook it on purpose by rolling your wrists earlier than necessary. This is not forever. This is roll it until you can hit about 10 shots in a row. Once you can do that you are switching to body rotation to straighten it out.
Have you not seen the release tips? I think you need to check them out and understand what I want you to do:

Some teaching pros say to keep your back to the target and drop your arms to start the downswing!What are your thoughts on this?
They are doing this to get you to swing out at the ball. Problem is if you keep your shoulders too square at impact you will flip it.

These other teachers may not realize that to get the club on plane you just need to use simple physics.

Also, you have 1/4 of second from the top to impact. You blink your eyes in .33 of a second. If you drop your arms when are you going to use your body? Dropping the club from the top is fine if you are doing it as a drill and doing easy swings. At full speed I wouldn’t recommend it. I did a tip on it here:
