If you’ve been to Palmview Golf course, you’ve probably seen the Gonzalez brothers.
McAllen Memorial’s Raul and Esteban Gonzalez hit the links from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on a typical day, training and improving their golf games.
Both competed on a Memorial Mustang golf team this year that saw consistent success despite a shortened season.
Raul served as the lone senior, embracing his leadership role on a team of younger talent. His play would eventually earn him an All-Valley First Team Honor. Esteban was just a freshman, but impressed by averaging a 78 throughout his first season with a couple of top-five finishes.
Outside of high school golf, both brothers compete in the junior division of the South Texas Professional Golf Association. Much like their play with the Mustangs, the Gonzalez brothers typically find themselves near or atop the podium.
You cannot shine a light on one without the other. So, for this week, the Gonzalez brothers shine as our DHR Health Athletes of the Week.
