I am just wondering, what do you think are some of the common traits that the best golfers have that makes them so good in this game?

The only thing you forgot is that no matter where a pro hits his ball in comps, they have about 300 pairs of eyes looking for his ball. So where we would have lost a ball they always find theirs.

I cant remember the last time I saw a pro lose a ball (not including water hazards etc)

For me the difference between a pro and an amature is not the practice or lessons anyone can get those, I used to hit over a 1000 a day as a junior. What I would say seperates the good from the best is the belief in themeslves, determination to win. If one believes in ones self there are no bounderies, I play better now after a 5 yr break than I ever did before, and I now hit less golf balls but the difference is that I now believe in my own ability.

I definitely have to agree with aargon.

Believe and will can make you do everything.

But if you talk about what the caracteristic is of the best golfpalyers play rather than character I would say the GIR (Greens in Regulations) and few putts.
