The following is a brief excerpt from an 80% heartwarming, 20% yuck, rags to riches story about Lizette Salas.

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."

Lizette was poor and later got a golf scholarship to USC, won the national championship and right now is one of the top US women golfers. Her parents sacrificed for her to play golf.

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

The really bad part is they probably broke about 500 or so IRS rules and regulations.

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.
