The video was broadcast today on NBC before the US Womens Open Golf championship with rookie Lizette Salas in 7th.
Host: "And you traded your services for lessons ?"
Father of Lizette Salas: "We don't have too much money. You need that service so I can do it. And you can help Lizette."
Jerry Herrera (Head PGA professional, Azuza Greens CC): "INSTEAD OF A PAYDAY, HE WANTED GOLF LESSONS FOR HIS DAUGHTER."

It is a good story except when she goes on about people telling her "Mexicans don't play golf".

They will never be prosecuted because it would look really bad for the IRS and lord knows they have a heck of a PR problem right now.
Now if Lizette was Caucasian and thanked the Lord for her golf, all hell would break loose I think.
