Cheers Rob... I don't know... I reckon people sometimes over analyse things a lot of the time. Or perhaps I simplify them too much. I've become a much better golfer since I gained perspective with the kids and realise that it is just a game. Sure a game I love to do well at, kick myself when I do wrong, but still just a game. Our livelihoods aren't on the line so if we stuff a hole or so, you get that. That's what our handicaps are for. Allows you room to move. As your handicap goes down, your expectations grow to reflect your ability. Your perspective however shouldn't change.
Smergs, i think you hit the nail on the head.
When i get frustrated, i start thinking, then it gets sloppy and i get angry.
Hopefully i can get to the course again today just chill and play 9 holes with the missus caddying. Hopefully, it takes the pressure of and it goes well

I do recall the Frog my friend...
I’ll be the first to admit I’m a very angry man on course at times Smergs .
I even bought myself one of those Have a Nice Day smiley face ball markers to remind myself to not lose my **** too badly out there!

It gets frustrating at times. I used to be able to let it go easily, but as my game improved, my expectations grew, so i am less "cruisey" with a bad shot. Then i hit 2 in a row and i give myself a good stern uppercut
Nothing wrong with getting angry out there Rob.
It shows passion and that you have an expectation of a decent level of performance.
I think the trick is to not dwell on it.
As Tiger says, he allows himself 10 seconds of anger to vent then it’s back to business.
You see a lot of golfers out there that drop their bundle when they’re frustrated.
If you can vent, take a few deep breathes afterwards, clear the mind and remind yourself of what you’re capable of, it’s all good.
I like to remind myself of another great quote from the ever angry John Lydon….”anger is an energy”
