Jay Hernandez’s Golf Drama ‘The Long Game’ to Screen at the White House


In a groundbreaking move for stories that include everyone, the White House will show the Mexican American golf thriller “The Long Game” on April 9 with the help of the Hispanic Heritage Foundation. This event, which happens just before the movie comes out on April 12, is a big step forward in showing different kinds of stories in American movies.

Based on a true story, “The Long Game” is about five young Mexican American caddies who overcome the odds and open their own golf course in the rough terrain of South Texas. Julio Quintana directed and co-wrote the movie. Even though they had to deal with a lot of problems, they were able to win the 1957 Texas State High School Golf Championship.

The star-studded cast, which includes Jay Hernandez, Cheech Marin, Julian Works, and Paulina Chávez, as well as Lupe Felan, who inspired the movie, will be at the White House showing. Antonio Tijerino, president and CEO of the Hispanic Heritage Foundation, was thrilled that the film had been recognized and stressed how important it is to show different American stories.

According to the book “Mustang Miracle” by Humberto G. Garcia, “The Long Game” is both entertaining and a strong story about sticking with something even when things get hard. Representative Joaquin Castro praised the movie for telling a gripping story that goes against negative media stereotypes of Latinos and praised how it showed Mexican American leaders who broke new ground.
