Lately I am trying really hard to resist becoming too negative about my bad golfing days which is not always that easy.
Nowadays when someone asks me how it went, I answer politely that it went "een beetje moeizaam" rather than complaining that I played really lousy.
In the wonderful world of golf, it is important to keep your cool and not to let a bad day on the links get you down.
The trick is to remain as positive as possible, just like it is in real life. Try it and it will make you feel better.
