In the game of golf, your attitude will define your game over time.  If you have the attitude that you can’t wait to hit the next shot, more likely or not you will pull off a good shot.  If you have a negative attitude and you are telling yourself that you can’t hit this shot, guess what, you will be correct and you will hit a very bad shot.
