Happy Birthday to Graciela (Chela) Quintana

Happy Birthday to Graciela (Chela) Quintana, the first Venezuelan woman to win a professional golf tournament in the US.  Quintana won the Morgan Town Classic in 1992.  She won the Venezuelan Amateur Championship eight times, and was a tour player on the US-based LPGA and the European and Futures circuits.  Injuries curtailed her career, and she returned to Venezuela where she established a foundation to give underprivileged children a chance to learn and excel at the sport of golf.
