The definition of insanity is repeating the same thing over and over again expecting a different result.

Words to that effect. Maybe you have got to this point because you have mentally got into a pattern of physical and emotional behaviour with your golf.
You can quit for a while and this can work as you get rid of the torture of it and come back refreshed or you can stop what you're doing and change your golfing habits.

Change the way you practice, the way you play the course, decide to accept your current level of play and decide to approach it without anger or frustration.

My guess would be this is a mental thing which is translating itself to your mechanics. Don't know if you've read any Rotella books but I highly recommend Golf is a game not perfect.

I have known someone who packed (to donate, sell, throw out) his golf gears after a bad weekend round.   2 - 3 weeks later, he'd unpack it and play again.  He'd do this 4 - 5 times a year.

I started playing golf this year.  I thought I was progressing well since I broke century mark a couple times.  Then past weekend I shot +30.... in 9 holes.  :yucky:  Posted 9 in one of par 3 after losing 3 balls and 11 in one of par 5 after losing another 2 balls along with 4 putts.  It's humbling.  Back home I had to tell wife I enjoyed the game thoroughly for next opportunity to go out. :roll:

You are at fun part of your golf career when you can improve your score almost every month.  I have been playing for 4 years and I still get 9s and 10s occasionally.   Keep playing and have fun (away from your wife :whistle:).

I dont get why people lose their mind over golf. Its not like you lost anything..maybe i can understand if you play for money or in a tournament. I can see myself getting frustrated there i guess. 

 

I seriously hate it when other people play bad and they let it ruin their whole mood. No fun playing with those people, although i feel for them its just not very nice to be around.

 

Not to sound like an arse, but its a serious character flaw, work on it.

I know it's a problem, however it only really happens when I'm playing by myself and don't have anyone to help keep my mind off of the bad shots. I put pressure on myself to be good at anything I do and if I'm alone when playing I ruminate on the bad shots which will put me in a foul mood sometimes. I've been getting better lately and bounce back a lot quicker than I used to because I am forcing myself to focus on the good shots instead of the bad.

Saw a guy in front of my group throwing a club violently after a bad shot.   I believe the whole mood changed for the group afterward.   Before, they were finding lost ball together, chattering about next shot, etc..  After the club throwing, they went into marching mode.    This is why I appreciate a playing partner with sense of humor.
