This is so me, I definetly fall into the range rat category and I fear its worse now that I've started taking lessons. Last year I looked forward to both the time on the range and playing but so far this year ALL I can think about is getting back to the range to work on my "new" swing. Hopefully that will change once the weather gets decent around here and I actually get out for my first round (darn you mother nature!!!).
I worry that this could be me too, but with the weather, I don't really know yet. I think our spring starts this Thursday here in VA. Last year I played about 20 rounds, and when given the choice, I chose playing over hitting balls at the range. In hindsight, I wasted the year, because I didn't improve as much as I thought I should. This year, I started evolvr and I am excited to get out to the range to see if the changes I'm trying to make will actually work. My daughter recorded my first and only range session this year, and I learned that I've got a ways to go to make even simple improvements with my swing. It'll be interesting to see how I play on the course, when I'm still in the middle of fixing poor posture problems, for example. I'm wondering if I'll have 3 swings:
1) indoor (absolute perfection in front of mirror in slow motion, with all the latest tips from evolvr incorporated),
2) range (improved, but initally awkward as I get full swings with a real ball in front of me), and
3) course (where I inadvertently revert back to my old swing, because I forget all I'm working on!)
If swing #3 ends up being one that discourages me, will I fall back to mostly range work? Time will tell.
