It sure as hell felt like it to be honest. Lol.

I wish I could give you some sage advice that has helped me.
However, I have an exceedingly difficult time finding the middle ground that allows me to compete with concentration and yet doesn't get annoyed and distracted when I do something careless or badly.

So, I just don't compete. Not even bag tags.

I play fun rounds with friends and solo rounds and I practice in the field.
Still enjoy disc golf, I just know that competing makes me not enjoy it.

At the end of the day, I always leave the course with a smile. And I guess that's the important part. Once I blow up at myself for being a dumbass I'm good to go.

Im convinced I just put too much pressure on myself to be honest, knowing I have the potential to play so much better, but crapping the bed mid round, it got to be frustrating.

But, now that I'm figuring out the root of my issues I don't see it being too much of an issue anymore.
