The Authority for Temper Control

I have a little story.
So, I had pretty extreme problems with my temper when I first started playing this insane game 3 years ago, and now it has gotten a lot better but I still have my problems. I can choke down my emotions and play level-headed during competitive rounds, but when I am just playing a normal round of golf, I seem to have more problems. Ok, so two days ago I had a chip shot that was in a really weird lie in the rough, so I take my 60 and try to hit it high and land it soft, and my club went right underneath it. In impulsive reaction, my club majestically found its way to the dirt with pretty extreme force :P. Well, my dad goes "The next time you slam a club...." and I interrupted "You'll take it away and I'll never play golf again." He says, "Ok smart***, you just lost it for opening your mouth."
The biggest problem was dissrespecting my dad here, biting the hand that feeds me (literally and figuratively). My dads counterattack to my temper is taking the club that I lose my temper with, but he has taken the same 60 before for using it when I should not have. That was a long 6 months without it. Another problem is I won't be competing for who knows how long because of my outburst. It's a pretty big bummer.
Any of you guys had similar experiences?
