    A curiousity. Golfers have been known to lose thei cool and react violently against their clubs. We have all see the videos. Clubs broken over the knee and tossed into the woods. Anger and frustration can lead to broken equipment. So the curiousity. Do trumpet players have the same propensity? Have you every seen a trumpet player really lose it and throw his/her horn? How about yourself, any reactive destruction of your trumpet due to frustration or anger?

    I have never in all my 50 years of playing seen violence against the instrument. I have seen many golfers loose it in my years however. So not sure they are exactly alike.

    So .01% of golfers behave this way. It's caught on video. Played over and over on the news and the Internet. Therefore, that is how golfers behave. :dontknow:
    Trumpet players do not have the same propensity, more like .005% throw their trumpet in the lake a la Rory McIlroy.

    To the OP
    I have contemplated it. Never did it. It would cost too much. Golf pros don't pay for their clubs or they get a ridiculous discount. It doesn't cost them much. So, to answer your question, they are NOT the same thing
