“When he moved to America, Jhonattan Vegas brought no English, no money and no firm sense of what might happen in a year, a month or even a day. He possessed little beyond a bag of inferior golf clubs and an atomic swing as raw as stripped metal. But he carried a wish.”-Kevin Robbins, sports writer
