“Mustang Miracle” Author Talk and Book Signing with Humberto G. Garcia
Join us to meet author Humberto G. Garcia and learn the inspiring story of four young self-taught Mexican-American golfers from Del Rio who won the 1957 Texas State High School Golf Championship. “Mustang Miracle” is soon to be a major motion picture.
In 1957, when very few Mexican-Americans were familiar with the game of golf, and even fewer actually played it, a group of young caddies from the San Felipe High School Golf Team competed against all-white schools for the Texas State High School Golf Championship. Despite having outdated and inferior equipment, no professional lessons or instructions, four young golfers with self-taught swings from the border city of Del Rio captured the State title. This book tells their story from their introduction to the game as caddies to eventually becoming champions.
