well... the act you speak of can be hard to avoid. if it is done literally you may be disqualified from an event. figuratively speaking of this defacation, you may have to work that out in your head. most of the time, a player just gets tired of leaving stink juice all over the course and has what alcoholics refer to as a moment of clarity. they then return home, wash off that cloak of failure and decide to practice more often.
when you are playing a round for scores, you should be showing off the skills you learned on the practice green. never thinking about how to play. just play.
