Playing a Game of Intermittent Reinforcement

Playing golf means being engaged in a sport that gives intermittent reinforcement. Drive far and you believe that you can achieve long drives every time you tee up your ball—but of course that's not reality. Just when you experience a smidgen of discouragement that reinforcement pops in and your drive flies as if it's sitting on a magic carpet.

Then you go back to seesawing back and forth—always looking for the magic carpet.
