Sports aren't just an important way to stay fit and trim. Movement is also fun and healthy, you can meet people and make new friendships.

JOSE SANCHEZ

 

MOVE A MOUNTAIN

One may ask, "can you move a mountain? " That particular quote means to do something challenging and difficult. Another may ask, "how good would one have to be to give up field strokes on top of their handicap?" Well, the answer to these rhetorical questions is two simple words... Jose Sanchez. I have paired him up with several different groups, and the consensus is the same. They're in awe to watch him effortlessly play a round of golf. He is unshaken and solid as a rock. He has few flaws in his game. He drives it a long way with a pretty pro draw, iron straight and true, plus the ability to make every putt he stands over. I am confident that Sunday's tournament will be exciting and competitive.  All eyes will be on Jose to see how he does on this course and react with several other players chipping the stone away from the mountain. And, of course, I will pair them up for a friendly "kill fest."
 In his last tournament win at the Wilderness in the U.S. Open, Jose had only one boggy with a shit load of birdies. Three players,  rookie Ira Gordon IV, Chad Adaway, and Hugo Amaro, challenged Jose in the Olympic Games.  Ira was in second place and needed a birdie on 18 to catch Jose, who was already sitting in the clubhouse with a cool 66. But sometimes chicken sometimes feathers in the crazy game of golf, and on 18, Ira had a mouth full of feathers with a lost ball and a triple boogie that cost hundreds of dollars. Chad played a steady game, going 38 39, but steady just won't get it done with Jose in the field. You need to bring your A-game and nothing less, or you will be playing for second or third place. Yes, I have heard the rumbling in the clubhouse about him, such as "he's too good. Don't let him play" blah, blah, blah! OMG, go work on your game and put the time in needed to compete. He is beatable just like anyone else, and yes, his handicap has gone down to a plus 1. Winning a tournament is not easy in this league. You have to play your best round of golf in each tournament. 
 Hugo Amaro was unshaken until I showed up with my camera and distracted him on the tee box on 14, where he ducks and hooked it in the weeds on the left side and then ducked joined it again.  This landed him a seven on that hole. He finished solid the rest of the way, ending in second place.
I am looking forward to seeing how the Open plays out. Can Jose string three grand rounds together, or will someone bring a sledgehammer and knock down that mountain?  If you can move that mountain, you will succeed in doing something difficult, but it's attainable.
Jaime Villarreal has held this spot since 2016. On the other hand, if he wins the Open, he will be the second to enter the Hall of Fame. Congratulations, Jose, for winning the Gold, Ian Cerisano the Silver, and Hugo Amaro with the Bronze medals
