I'll assume you've had a few lessons and know what the basics of the setup (grip, stance posture, and aim) are, and you have a swing that reminds observers of a golf swing. :)

The swing drill I would recommend for you is a half swing, taking the hands to hip height going back and hip weight going through, concentrating in the club hitting the ground in front of you at the same spot on the ground and at the same depth each time. This is where you're going to be hitting the ball and this is where you need to be good. Get some photos of tour players at impact and try to imitate their position when you pass through impact.

Leave a golf club somewhere in the house where you pass by a lot, and every time you pass by, pick up the club and practice getting into your setup a few times. Setup is more critical than you might think.

I would recommend chipping with your 6-iron, just to get the stroke down and making good contact every time. You can learn distance control at the practice green, but learning to make good contact comes first. A wadded-up blanket makes a good backstop.

Practice putting certainly, putts between 3-6 feet. Putt at the lid from a large can of whole tomatoes. It's about the same size as a golf hole.

I have a 4'x4' carpet remnant that I use to swing and chip on so as not to damage the real carpet in the room.

    • A better way to say it would be using the leg to push the hip, here's a video of what I mean he's referring to the downswing but am I right in saying for the backswing should you do something similar, where you use your leg to push the hip rather than just trying to get the hip to turn clockwise   
    • Day 3: COVID-19 day 6 and 7 drills again. Then downswing priority piece work with 7-iron, not much, just 10 balls. 
    • Day 69, August 2, 2021 More work on shortening my backswing. I don’t want to even get to hands to right shoulder… at least feeling like that.
    • I'm sure if you look at about two years ago on this site, I mentioned somewhere that after having my first ever sub-80 round (a nice 77 in a tournament!), I failed to break 90 for I think two months.  These things happen. Can't hit an iron?  What's the longest swing you can make with your PW and hit a good result?  If the answer is a chip, go hit some chips and, after some good ones, expand into pitches.  Similar with pitches into 3/4 shots, etc.   This is very likely something you can work out by going back to what you do well.
