Mexican Isabella Fierro (-7) obtained the second individual place in the Spirit International Amateur Golf Championship. While, with the tricolor team along with Cory López (+15), he placed fifth in this tournament held at the Whispering Pines Golf Club, in Texas, USA.

“Today, I felt very at peace, I made mistakes like any golfer could have made, but, ‘I dried my claw’, that internal strength that I have, that I have been preparing a lot and working, went ahead,” said the Yucatán Country player Club.

The Mexican was three strokes from the first place obtained by the number one of the ‘World Amateur Golf Ranking’, the American Rose Zhang (-10), also champion in the team modality.

“This silver medal not only goes to me and my university (Oklahoma State University), it goes to Mexico and all those little girls who are working to be here one day, and I know they will achieve it,” said Isabella, who did six birdies in his last round.

On the other hand, the Mexican men’s team was placed at 17th place. It was represented by Luis Carrera (+11), who finished at 24th place; and by Isabella’s brother, Alejandro Fierro (+23), who finished on site 36.

“I am happy, excited and grateful, because being here is already something incredible. I am happy because my brother is here with me representing Mexico. Every time I have the honor of representing Mexico, it makes me skinny, a lot of emotion, a lot of joy, “he added.

It is worth mentioning that the individual title was taken by American Sam Bennett (-6) and the men’s team championship was won by Sweden.

Thus ended the Spirit International Amateur Golf Championship, in which the golfers were accompanied by coaches Santiago Casado and José López; in addition to Ricardo Carrillo, President of the National Teams Committee, Ranking; and Link and Follow-up to Professional Players.
