Competing at the top level of any sport requires a huge amount of drive, discipline and determination. Any competitor needs the three "Ds" to carry out the practice that is needed to excel, but they also need them in the heat of battle.
In this video, Steve Jones, an international class marathon runner from Wales in the 1980s, illustrates perfectly that you should never give in. The next time you lose three holes in a row to go from 2 up to 1 down, remember Steve Jones.
