I don’t understand what has gone wrong or changed
In a word, adolescence. A lot of dogs regress at this age, and behaviours you thought were solid suddenly go out the window.

You need to strongly reinforce that coming back to you is the Best Thing Ever, far more fun than running around, or anything else he might be doing. So call him back for slivers of hot dog, then release. Call him back to play, then release - and so on. Coming to you isn’t the end of his fun, it adds to it. If necessary, do this with him on a long line (only ever attached to a harness, never a collar, for safety).
