Everyone, please bend the knee, The King has returned, for all you newcomers and others who may be oblivious who the Royal Highness is in the Houston Golf League, it is none other than "The King-Jose Sanchez". His Majesty was on full display at the Battle of Battlegrounds where he mercilessly destroyed the field. His 67 was nine shots better than the rest of the field. The two previous Kings, George Vasquez, the ruler at Glenbrook and Vincent Gilmore, Emperor at Clear Creek, put up a small squirmish but was quickly overthrown by the barrage of razor-sharp irons that Sanchez was unleashing. ''The Captain'' Roland Turner, and ''The Pit Bull'' Hal Gregory finished tied for second and laid at the feet of the King with throats slashed and bleeding out. The wise old King sent a clear message to the young and upcoming two rookie squires Aaron Harris and Trey Layton, bring your A game or stay at home. The League is a good platform to better your game, it creates some of the same kind of atmosphere, where pressure can make or break you if you're looking to take that next step up. I am sure King Sanchez will put so much pressure on the young guns they will become diamonds. Congratulations to Jose Sanchez on a great round of golf, especially dealing with the high winds. Dilly Dilly, Long Live the King!
Not sure what got into Hector Gonzalez, but he put a serious beat down on the B Flight in historic proportions. Hector's win by 14 shots was the largest in the League history, in fact, I did some research on the internet and concluded that his 14 shot margin of victory has only occurred in recent years when a young Tiger Woods had great success at the 2000 U.S. Open. While all of his competitors had significantly worse days, resulting in Woods winning by a 15-stroke margin, setting the second-best record in PGA history and the highest margin of victory in the last 50 years. No one else in recent PGA Tour history has even come close to winning by 15 strokes. Johnny Miller's 1975 performance during the Phoenix Open, though, did earn him a 14-stroke victory—a record shared by Gene Sarazen at the 1935 Massachusetts Open and Ben Hogan at the 1945 Portland Invitational. So, Mr. Gonzalez, you are walking amongst golf's very best. It was a close battle for second place between 4 golfers, the two Joe's, Big Red, Joe Hart and the rookie playing in his first league event Joe Eckford Jr. Hart was very much disappointed with his performance at the Battleground. That is his home course and he shot at least ten shots worse than his normal round there. Both Joe's finish tied for 4th place which is not bad for the rookie Eckford in his first league event. Third place went to Jayme Gonzales, holes 15 and 16 was a 3 shot swings and that was the difference between him and the second place finisher Gene Chesson. Gene's last-minute decision to play in this event turned out to be a good one. Not bad Gene be interesting who's going to be the first rookie golfer to win in the class of 2018. Well, nothing else left to say in this article but Congratulations on your Historial Victory Hector Gonzalez.
