Golez Jr. of the Lone District of Bacolod City said, during the awarding ceremonies of the 1st Congresman Golez Caddys/Umbrella Girls Golf Tournament 2013 held at the Negros Occidental Golf and Country Club, Marapara Golf and Country Club Social Hall, Barangay Bata yesterday.
"Bacolod City is home of the professionals and best golfers. It gives us honor and prestige to our country. They started practising golf with their caddies and on how their performances are, forms, styles, strategies discovered it is because of their caddy. But most of the time, these caddies oftentimes were forgotten when the fame and glory were achieved by the golfers. The caddy has all the knowledge and abilities to pinpoint who will be the next known golfers. This is the day we offered a meaningful and colorful event in the lives of the caddy with their families." he said.
