Golf can be hard. Yes, I know, this is not a newsflash to anyone who has ever picked up a club. The skill required to just hit that darn, little white ball takes years to fine tune. Adding insult to injury, golf is difficult because it puts the golfer through a series of tests—physical, mental, and emotional—each and every round. Even better, those tests take place right in front of friends, teammates, and fellow golfers. It’s a bit unnerving, all right. To top it off, golf is supposed to be a “dignified” sport where participants display their best behavior at all times. Therefore, getting worked up on the “rare” occasion where something goes wrong is highly frowned upon.
