Ok so you messed up on yet another shot and that is what we amateur golfers do otherwise we’d be on the LPGA or PGA Tour. You can fly off the handle and let forth a stream of foul language which has the effect of igniting a downward spiral of negativity. I say just accept you are an amateur and your fate is many a crappy shot. So if you are about to explode why not take a breath and STOP. Do not react. Just freeze to prevent what your emotions want you to do which is to act without thinking. Try to be the boss of your emotions. Put another way just accept that shitty shot because there is a gremlin feasting on your anger and frustration. That shot is so yesterday and do you want to be haunted on the golf course by a bad shot?
