Do you leave the range early if you are hitting well ?

I hardly ever leave a ball on the range that I've paid for. Usually for me, about mid-bucket, anxieties go away, I groove a swing, and become relaxed and calm, a very therapeutic feeling takes over. So different than a round. I have tried to take this positive feeling/mindset at the end of the bucket to an unscheduled round, thinking I would put up a memorable score, but it never has worked, so I quit trying this. For me there's not a tight correlation between range hits, where I hit multiple balls per club, and golf shots during the round, when I might use the same club one or twice and in different ways. It's like first shots all the time.  I wonder sometimes if range work is a big part ritual. Anyway, interesting post.

Recently I've only been going with 3-4 clubs (50 balls) and I treat every shot as if I'm on the course. (pre shot routine etc) If I'm playing well and I have 10-15 balls left, I'll chip/pitch the rest otherwise I leave with notes to research or work on my next session.

No I don’t leave early. I may, on occasion, move to hitting different types of shots if I feel I have engrained what I wanted to work on for that day. For instance, if I am working on a certain move and I m hitting this ball really well with that feel, I may only hit a certain amount of balls and then start working on trouble shots or partial wedges or something.

I spend range time shooting targets with 2 or 3 clubs, 5 balls max per clubI, tend to finish off any range time with 5 balls saved for driver.

and with my limited skill set, hit it as hard as I can with no thought to where the ball goes. Just hip turn and swing as hard as I can.

That's always one of my practice activities-practice swinging faster

No I don't, like others I may do some partial wedges.  The only time I'll leave early is if I'm getting fatigued and am masking mistakes.  No point in doing bad reps.

I will answer yes and no.

No - when I am there working on things.  I will keep hitting targets and shots... that why I came to the range.

Yes - when I am hitting a small bucket before a round to get warmed up.  If I am hitting them good and feel ready I will grab my clubs and head to the first hole.

If shots from a full swing are all going well, I'll switch to pitching and finish the bucket with those shots.

So I'll leave my full swing early, I guess, but there are other things that need attention as well.
