Getting Over Bad Shots
There are many things that can help a person get over bad golf shots. The first is to understand that the game is difficult and that you're going to hit bad shots. So it becomes about how you react and recover after hitting one. The second would be to do all that you can prior to hitting the shot. For example, analyzing all of the correct data needed to choose an appropriate target as well as the correct club and shot. There are others also but one you should think about employing into your practice is this and it will make a dramatic difference: Many golfers have a tough time getting over bad shots because they don't practice getting over bad shots. Here's how you can start to apply a simple but extremely important tactic into your practice sessions.
Next time you're practicing, whether it's time allocated to full swing practice, putting, chippping or any other aspect of the game, consider doing the following: after striking a poor shot (let's say it's a chip shot that you chunk producing a result that trickles two feet onto the green and 20 feet short of your intended hole), instead of raking over another ball to hit pick up your putter and proceed to read it, go through your routine and roll it just as you would have to if you were playing. Whether you make the putt or not is insignificant at this moment. The fact that you're learning to "pick up the pieces" after a terrible chip shot is what matters most. It'll make a huge difference in your on-course play.
