Alvaro Quiros took a share of the lead in the first round at The Masters. In his interview after the first round he spoke of his change in attitude this year as previously he had been expecting to do well. “Last time I was thinking about shooting low and I missed the cut. This time I was not pushing, that is why I shot -7.”
Stop pushing and stop defending. Stay patient, do your best and let it happen. If it’s going to, it will.
