looks like golf is growing down south as well as in the far east. I see a lot of latinos using this site.

btw - lol at your 'ole!'. as riveting and thought-provoking as your editorials are, it's the dorkiness that keeps me coming back.

Das cool. Latins are great sports people, they pretty much took over Major league baseball. Give em some time and I'm sure they'll stake a claim in the golf world.

Hopefully we will see Carlos Franco and Marco Ruiz on that tour, along with a bunch of kids in the galleries. Our game needs them any way we can get them.

I'm happy to see attention being paid to LATAM golf. Golf in the Region needs some good attention by the powers that be. The US golf industry is feeling a bit pinched, it is far more severe in LATAM. I hope these Tourneys will generate a lot of interest and starts adding golfers rather than the current trend of losing them to other activities.
