The final day of the UjENA Jam 2008 began early Sunday morning at the El Tigre Golf Course and Country Club at Paradise Village in Nuevo Vallarta. Seventy amateur golfers, mostly local, tried to tame El Tigre in teams of three or four in a shotgun, scramble format.

In a scramble format each player on each team hits their first shot and the team chooses the best shot and then each player hits their next shot from that ball placement. This follows the same format of play for every shot until a putt is made.
Scores are always low in a scramble format due to at least two or three more shots from the same spot. On the green, if the best shot was 10 feet from the pin, the whole team putts from 10 feet, and more than likely one player will sink the putt.
The seventy golfers had another obstacle other than battling the 7000 + yard golf course. There were models, and a lot of them, on the fairways, on the greens, next to the lakes and riding in golf carts, very closely followed by the many photographers that were all competing for their own prizes in the UjENA competition. With Sunday the final day of a week of photo shoots and the top 20 models chosen, the competition was intense, although it appeared to be just great fun.
Jesus Carmona, the Director of the El Tigre Golf Course and Country Club was as hospitable as always, and he and El Tigre's golf professional, Francisco Salazar, were always present and available during the entire event. As always, any day is a good day out at EL Tigre, and this Sunday the UjENA models gave this beautiful, yet challenging golf course an added attraction, making it more enjoyable for all.
