Apparently Matt Kuchar actually does get angry

Published

Matt Kuchar, definition of happy-go-lucky, smiling assassin on the golf course, quintessential jolly dad, gets mad.

You heard this earth-shattering revelation here first. Well, actually, Kuch told Golf.com’s Ryan Assaletta that he indeed has experienced the emotion of anger. And further, Kuchar has gotten mad…on the golf course!

RA: Do you ever get mad?

MK: “I certainly do. I’ve got a 10-year-old and an eight-year-old boy. My 10-year-old has a temper with sports. If he loses, he’s unhappy. But I cut him a bit of slack. I was that way as a kid, as well. I used to throw racquets on the tennis court; I used to throw clubs on the golf course. And I learned my lesson. My parents would take away my tennis racquet for a week, take away my golf clubs for a week, and I didn’t like those weeks very much. I learned my lesson pretty quickly — and learned ways around it.”

Unbelievable. How does he do it?

“I think I’m blessed with a makeup that tries to find enjoyment in whatever the situation is. You know that saying, “Life’s too short not to have a good time”? I’m going to find out how to have a good time, particularly on the golf course.”

Find a way to have a good time? What is this sorcery? It’s one thing to say you’re going to have a good time on the golf course, but for most of us, that goes up in smoke after the first three-whack or duffed pitch shot. Credit to Kuchar for being able to actually do it.

In some sense, that’s an achievement greater than winning a major, which Kuch hasn’t done. Does that make you mad, Matt?

Probably not.

But really, we could all learn something from Kuchar. GolfWRXers, did you ever play with someone who smiled while he crushed you on the golf course and picked your pockets? Let us know.

    Great story! Love Kuchar. Golf is an ‘enjoyable’ escape from reality and why the hell wouldn’t you laugh and have fun, beats the heck out of brow beating yourself.
