Hector and Cristina Gutierrez

Greg Norman Champions Golf Academy had the pleasure of attending the Carolina Spring Challenge, which took place at the Woodside Plantation Country Club on March 14-15, 2015 in Aiken, South Carolina.

GNCGA took nine of their full time students to this tournament. GNCGA would like to say good job to all of their students who played hard and gave it their best and congratulations to Hector and Cristina Gutierrez for winning first place in the boys and girls 15-18 year old division. GNCGA asked Hector if there is any competition between him and his sister. Hector responded, “Since we started playing golf we have always competed. It’s a very healthy competition because we motivate and push each other to be better. We are very competitive and want to beat each other, but at the end of the day we are also each others biggest supporters.” Hector and Cristina both shot six over for the tournament. Hector won by three and Cristina won by eight. Hector and Cristina each shot 75 for both days of the tournament. We asked Cristina in what way has your brother been by your side throughout this tournament. Cristina said, “He is a great brother in every tournament. We support each other and watch each other on the first tee and when one of us finishes before the other, we always go cheer and support the other.”

GNCGA looks forward to all the other tournaments they are apart of in 2015!
