About this product
- DescriptionIn 1957, when very few Mexican-Americans were familiar with the game of golf, and even less actually played it, a group of young caddies which had been recruited to form the San Felipe High School Golf Team by two men who loved the game, but who had limited access to it, competed against all-white schools for the Texas State High School Golf Championship. Despite having outdated and inferior equipment, professional lessons or instructions, four young golfers with self-taught swings from the border city of Del Rio, captured the State title. Th ree of them took the gold, silver and bronze medals for best individual players. Th is book tells their story from their introduction to the game as caddies to eventually becoming champions.
