Matt Kuchar might give the impression he's a cool, calm customer on the golf course, but the seven-time PGA Tour winner has revealed that wasn't always the case. 

Kuchar, who slapped his playing partner Bubba Watson every time the pair made a birdie at the Zurich Classic last week, was asked by the media if he actually had a temper. 

I certainly do.

I've got a 10-year-old and an eight-year-old boy. My 10-year-old has a temper with sports. If he loses, he’s unhappy. But I cut him a bit of slack. I was that way as a kid, as well. I used to throw racquets on the tennis court; I used to throw clubs on the golf course. And I learned my lesson.

My parents would take away my tennis racquet for a week, take away my golf clubs for a week, and I didn’t like those weeks very much. I learned my lesson pretty quickly — and learned ways around it.

In the eyes of Kuchar, it's just a game so why get so mad? ... then again, you would be smiling if you'd made $42 million in career prize money on the PGA Tour! 

I think I’m blessed with a makeup that tries to find enjoyment in whatever the situation is.

You know that saying, “Life’s too short not to have a good time”? I’m going to find out how to have a good time, particularly on the golf course.

Fair play Kooch, we salute you sir. 

What's your on-course attitude like? Are you laidback like Kuchar or a hot-head like someone like Tyrrell Hatton or Jon Rahm?
