Affirmation
I love fast greens
With every lie I encounter I will observe without judgement
I love slow greens.
There are no hard putts, just challenging ones
With every pin placement I will observe without judgement
Tree, bunkers and water are simply tools to frame my shot.
I love playing on a windy day
Every practice must have goals
