Imho, for me, the best way to efficientize practicing would be to have video of swings and analyzing them quickly while playing a practice round to reconcile feel ain't real on the course. What do you do differently you can't see practicing on the range, what do you really do when you have a downhill lie?
It's not really a range - boom - course progression, I think of it increments like this:
Implement new piece at home in front of mirror
on range slowly 1/2 swings hit crappy shots
faster 3/4 swings till you can hit it decent
hit it decent with someone watching
hit it decent on the course alone
hit it well on the course w/someone watching
hit it well on the playing w/a group w/pressure (money, pride)

He made a big splash nationally in 2012, and since then has just been winning lots of amateur and college tournaments. Hopefully he and his team will do well this weekend so we can see him a bunch next week on the National Championships broadcasts.
I think the idea of 39-40 year old golfer hanging it up for good is pretty ridiculous.
We're going to see Tiger return to competitive golf at some point. The press is blowing up those wedge shots at congressional into some kind of Freudian premintion.
