LUCK IS WHEN PREPARATION MEETS OPPORTUNITY

Confidence...
   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.

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!

  One of my absolute favorite kids in the World. He gave up his bed for me when I was a guest at his home.  I was particularly impressed when his parents told he keeps his room tidy by himself.  His closet was so perfectly organized I could not believe he did it. All the shoes were together and everything was hung up on this miniature clothes rack. Than on the side of his home was a soccer field! Here is this little kid playing soccer with teenagers and adults. He looked like Magic Johnson with a basketball. He ran rings around around everyone and scored several times. I could not believe my eyes. Can you agree this kid has a smile that gleams. Mauricio Figueroa, Mexico 2006 Champion Florida Int'l.
