Could be fatigue, take a few days off and then go out and hit again.

When you are hitting that often, are you going out each time with a purpose (i.e. something specific you want to accomplish with your strokes each day). If not, give it a try and see if it helps. If so, you could be making subtle changes to your game that you are unaware of because of the frequency of play. Personally, I find that 3-4x a week is my max for improvement, over and above can sometimes bring a wax/wane effect in confidence with my strokes and bring my game down. I'd take a week off and go back at it, it's good to get away from the game now and again both mentally and physically IMO.

go light a few days, your body will recover and youll probably come back stronger

The direction for improvement isn't always up.

It's up and down, although if you keep playing, the trend will be up in the long term.
