Is this while on the course?  Is he playing in the same group as you?  If so, tell him to let you play your game and then you can yell at each other.  If not on course, leave it at the door when you leave or if he is calling you on course...don't answer the phone, wait till it stops ringing and tell him your playing golf to text you whatever he needs.  Then wait till 18 to read it.

Now...all this advice is worth exactly what you paid for it and remember...I have been married 3 times.  😀

What does one do when they have an argument with their spouse and it messes with their shots? How does one get over it?

I believe @CarlSpackler had the best advice but I believe it would benefit you to find a women's league and play with others women.   It will add a different perspective to your golf game.

Two recent movies kind of deal with this issue, Free Solo and First Man. When I considered their pov, you mess up, you die, golf seems a lot easier.

Never had an argument bad enough to carry over onto the course.  We generally talk it out pretty quickly after a spat and neither of us typically holds a grudge.  She told me when she accepted my proposal of marriage that she was a bitch, so I'd better be okay with that.  :~(

My answer may disappoint you. It will effect you. In Jack’s autobiography, he mentions how his wife had a revelation that he believes to be true; Players who are in a good place within their relationship/marriage play better than those who are not. He claims the success of Arnie, Black Knight, and himself had a lot to do with each of them being married to an “amazing woman”

It's hard for me to enjoy golf - much less play well - when there's excessive drama in my life. Even less so when drama follows me onto the course.

I just added hitting a bucket on my first thing to do every day. Then go to work. Became a routine. Fight or no fight- we’re both golfing today, maybe not together, but I found it changed my outlook on my marriage. He can’t believe he came home after 3 weeks and now his wife won’t shut up about it. I think he doesn’t recognize this person.

    • There's a note at the top of the "My Team" page now.  Confused me at first too.  
    • Day 106 (22 Apr 21) - 3/4 swings with the 50 and 54 wedges w/real golf balls in the back yard (and the neighbors).  Focused on engaging the bounce of the club and not flipping the club.  Worked on getting the balls to land and stop w/in 5 yard circle.  For the 50 this swing is about 50yds and for the 54 it hovers in the 30yd area.  Love it when you can pick all the balls within that diameter circle.  Followed it with some pitches of about 10yds keeping the head down and focused on the ball.  Could see the shadows of the club and ball out of the corner of my eye....that was somewhat disconcerting as I would think "Oh no....its off to sliceville." Then to look up and see it land right at my target.  Really forced me to keep the head in place through impact as it forced me to "trust the shot"......
    • Since I've only really attempted the game for the past 2-1/2 years and I will be 62 this year, therefore losing all the memories would be the "better" option.  Sadly I would lose the first birdie my 4-1/2yr old grandson made (yes we teed him up about 100yds out, but it was still birdie on a par 3 no less), but I would also like to think my best memories would be made going forward as my game will continue to improve to a point (age and loss of physical abilities will begin to rob the improvements), my sons' games will continue to improve and of course I will get to see and remember the great milestones my grandson will make as he grows into the game.  Forward and onward.....  
    • I can see the usefulness of the drills, especially day 5.  That is another way of envisioning what my instructor is trying to get me to do.  It makes so much sense that if I get my hips to turn earlier (and perhaps harder), the arms can follow, and the club will be square without my hands having to flip it to catch up.  I will do all of the drills, but that is the one I am going to focus on the most.  I'm also going to look more carefully at my trail elbow in the backswing, and make sure it isn't collapsing a bit too much.  I think that little flip is what causes my occasional fat shots, when I don't time it quite right it throws the clubhead into the ground. My SC300 claims those shots carried 155 or so, I think it is a little generous, I think the carry is closer to 145, total of 155, based on golf course results.  But, at least I am almost hitting solidly for an old, falling apart guy.   First night of league tonight, I need to cleanse my mind of extra thoughts for those few hours, and see if I can make some improvements over the weekend!  
    • Still using an XS and really haven't felt like I needed to upgrade my phone. Now with the new AirTags, I think I'm going to get a new one just for the U1 chip, lol. I like this strap, always losing my sunglasses.
