It gets uncomfortable playing with people like that. I try not to let it bother me but it ultimately does......When I was in high school playing golf with my pops and his friends, i would pout and act like a jacka**. Coming of one of the putting green I proceeded to embed my putter into the fringe and my dad said "Thats it, you are not playing golf until i tell you otherwise. It was the 14th hole and it was like a punch in the gut. I finished my round, didnt play for 2 weeks (summer time and felt like an eternity for a kid) and have never lost my cool again on the course. There is no point.......One of the best things ive heard regarding emotions is you want to limit your range of them. Dont get too excited when playing well and vice versa. It makes sense especially when you watch the guys (most of them) on t.v.

The go to is the immediate lean.. cause that will clearly help the ball come back into play with a nice low "aw crap".  Two practice swings and a provisional.

My clubs and tennis rackets are too precious to me...no way i slam or throw them ever. Just give a nice greeting to the lord or something but that's about it :)

Same here.  I can't help but quietly say a few F-bombs and then move on to the next shot.  Does it actually make me feel better?  YES!.

I'll just laugh it off, but will still be a little mad inside...I heard someone once say "We're not good enough to get mad at our bad shots"....Very true...

I've mentioned this before here, but I found a strategy early on for on course anger.

I'll usually take a tee or ball and throw it with my left hand (I'm right handed).  Usually the sheer awkward futility of the throw makes me laugh enough to forget the bladed gomer-ball I just shanked into the conifers.

Golf is humbling in many ways. But it gives us a tremendous number of opportunities to become a better person, too. We are all imperfect as people and as golf ears. To a great extent, we may not improve the latter, but we can certainly improve the former. Looks like a bunch of folks who have posted here have made great strides.
