Day 67. Took newly retired wife to the covered range. It was crowded. I gave her a good bay and I got the dreaded bay by the wall so I couldn’t swing driver. Worked a bit on my drill then just did target work with a few clubs.

Day 90: 3/2/2023

Today was a madcap crazy day at work. 
I got some putting practice in. All of it was bead work. 

Basically I used the putting mirror for a dozen balls, hitting six footers. 
Then I did the gate drill into the putt-out perfect putt target. 

My bag is an ever-changing combination of clubs. 

A mix I am forever tinkering with.

Day 6 (3 Mar 23) - Played 18 at Minnesott today.  Switched it up a little by playing progressive tees (started on the back tee(blue) and progressed on set fwd on each successive hole.  They have five sets (blue-white-gold-red-silver) so I had four holes that were reasonably longer (1-6-11-16) than what I play as well as six that were shorter than usual (4-5-9-10-14-15).   I enjoyed rethinking tee shots and related approaches.  Great exercise for me in course management.

Today I did some downswing stuff. Speeding it up a little bit.

Not sure what the op means by streak. But in New England we just can’t Willy nilly pick a day to practice. So since the weather hasn’t cooperated much I’ve been to the range twice. 1st time was 24 balls. 7 iron then driver. (3days rehabilitation). Just swinging to get close to plain and yes I swung way too hard. The 2nd time was today 7 iron and 5 wood. 24 balls , just swing plain and creating muscle memory. I swung at 50% this time. Not sore yet.

Day 91: 03/03/2023

More putting today. All about the bead work today. Gate drills and using the putting mirror. 

I also did some pitching and chipping before it started pouring rain.

Started to do my overspeed training, but my elbow as giving me a little trouble so I laid off it. I have a golf trip coming up and I want to go uninjured.

Day 62: Played 18 holes. Bad front 9, much better back 9. Then went to the range and worked on my priority piece for about half an hour, and got some videos for evolvr. Productive golf day.

You can practice indoors. I think this is pretty clear:

26 of the last 28 days is a streak.

I’d love nothing more than to throw 5 minutes or more a day into my game. But it’s just not happening. So just a periodic weekly update is all I can manage right now. Thanks for the clarification

Day 92: 03/04/2023

I got to the indoor range early this morning. I started with @iacas's speed control putting drill. Then I spent 25 balls chipping at 3 different targets. After that I spent 25 balls hitting pitch shots of various lengths. 
I warmed up just a little bit and then took video of my swing both DTL and Caddie View. I'm checking just a couple of priority areas. I have a golf trip in less than a week and I don't want to make any more large changes until after I get back. So, the first video was just confirmation. Then I did a couple of reinforcement drills with a 6 iron. I took some more video and felt okay about where everything is. 

Next I pulled driver and did 2 slow motion swings and 2 full speed shots.

Went back to the putting green and spent 15 minutes hitting "makeable" putts. 

Packed up and went home. Tomorrow will likely be my last really good practice day before my trip. 

My bag is an ever-changing combination of clubs. 

A mix I am forever tinkering with.
