   Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.


The 20th PARS Florida International Junior Championship took place Dec. 28-30. 2015 at PGA Golf Club, Port St Lucie, Florida. Weather conditions were very tough with gusts up to 15- 20 mph and with wet conditions which caused lift, clean and place.  All the girls and 12 and under boys played St. Lucie Trail  course and boys and girls 13-14 and 15-17 played the famous Ryder Course. Both courses  were in great shape.  Over 50 different country's were represented with over 65% International players within the field of 140 players.

Keep a good attitude, and you persevere, get some breaks and make some putts, you can still find a way to POST A GOOD SCORE. Never give up or let your emotions get the best of your ability. You never know when you are going to hole a fairway shot or chip shot. If you can reach the green you can make that shot go into the hole. It happens when you least expect it. But it will happen!
