Battle of survival looms after rains
A breakthrough victory did little to change Rene Menor’s perception of himself going to today’s ICTSI Riviera Classic in Silang, Cavite.
The former caddy from Iloilo continues to downplay his chances despite his recent conquest at Splendido.
“I wish I could get a chance to win again,” said Menor in Filipino. “But Langer is tough and the field is strong. Just to make the cut would be enough.”
Incessant rains brought about by Tropical Depression “Maring” made Riviera’s par-72 Langer course even tougher to conquer, but the organizing Pilipinas Golf Tournaments, Inc. said the third leg of the PGT Asia Tour is pushing through.
“This will be a battle of survival. The course is difficult and the weather is harsh,” said golfer Tony Lascuña in Filipino.
