Have you ever had a day when you just plain sucked?

When it happens, just stop keeping score. Maybe change things up since the round is shot anyway. Tee off with a 7i on a par 5....play a little punchy 9i from 100 yards out instead of your sw/gw, etc.

Over the summer I was in FL visiting my folks and went out to play alone at a local course. Well, I couldn't hit a shot. My score was somewhere around 85, but I picked up on several holes and lost several sleeves of balls. Would have been over 90 if I played everything out lol! Two days later I played with my uncle and shot 68 at his club from 6700 yards! Totally different guy, everything flushed, in control of the ball, body feeling fluid and graceful.
Funny, when I play that well I actually cannot believe that I could be capable of playing so poorly on occasion, and vice versa.

Well described. Spend the entire round searching for that elusive “feel”.
Last week, it felt so easy, this week, it seems like I can barely figure out to get the club on the ball.

I have not had a beer while golfing in 25 years. I now have a formula where after 9 holes if I am 24 or more over, I'm drinking. At the turn I caught the cart girl and bought 2 - 16oz beers. They were gone by the time I teed off on 11 and I'm a light weight.
Played much better on the back and my partner said I was a lot more fun.

The round turns into match play, starting at whatever hole we start the game on.
Each person alternates choosing one club (besides putter) that both players have to use on the entire hole.
It's fun taking on a par 5 with only a 6-iron or a 130 yard par 3 with a 5 iron. Hit different shots, stop thinking about score, and keep yourself having fun in the round.

I normally can shake off a bad shot, but this just worse and worse to where I was at the point I just wanted to be finished. I considered quitting during the round....
Any mental tricks to get out of this?
I always seen to have at least one or two rounds like that a year. What I find amazing, is that they always seem to coincide with some of my worst luck of the year. For example, landing in a divot when you finally hit a fairway, horseshoeing putts, landing on roots, hitting a sprinkler head/cart path and bouncing O.B., etc ...
Drinking and learning to laugh at your misfortune is the best way to handle it!

Usually it's 41-44.
There are days when I can do no wrong.
The bad days feel like I've never played before or, I'm using clubs fitted for someone else.
Those bad days are aggravating.
Keep going back. After a bad day, I usually have a great round the next time.
