No more buying new equipment after a bad round.  Repeat 100x.

I guess my new year's resolution will be to practice after a bad round.  Note to self, can't buy a good golf game unless it's money for good professional lessons.  For self thought good players, just practice and find it in the dirt again.

Go home, grill, sit on the deck, sleep. Repeat. Same as if a good round, honestly.

Agreed.  I find a break is as good as any practice if I've been having a tough go of it lately.
Your problem is LOFT -- Lack of friggin' talent!

Whether I play well or poorly, it doesn't really have any effect on me like that.  Each day my swing feels different.  And who needs an excuse to buy new clubs, lol.

No new clubs or practice. Just chalk it up to a bad day. Then get home and guzzle a bottle of vino.

I have to agree with the other guys here. Usually after a bad day or 2 i take the bag out of the trunk and it gets a "time-out" in the basement for a couple days. I try to just totally forget about golf and come back with a fresh perspective/better attitude.

There’s no such thing as ‘a bad round’. Any day on a golf course spending time with friends is a good day,

At our club I'll usually wonder out to the range (or one of the greens, etc) right after the round to try to reverse what was wrong - usually something fairly simple. I just spend a few minutes on it. Then hit the reset button...
