FOR regaining the 2013 Putra Cup title in style, the Philippine team made it to the national contingent to the Myanmar (Burma) Southeast Asian Games in December.

Philippine chef de mission Jeff Tamayo said six slots have been reserved for the golfers in the lean PH delegation to the Dec. 11 to 22 Games after capturing the Putra Cup crown by an incredible 22-stroke margin over Singapore recently at the Sherwood Hills Golf Club in Trece Martirez, Cavite.

“Prior to the tournament, it was decided that winning the title will be their ticket to the SEA Games,” said Tamayo.


Fil-Am discoveries Rico Hoey and Jonathan delos Reyes will again join Rupert Zaragoza and Jobim Carlos in the team, which ended the country’s 17-year title drought in Southeast Asia’s golf team championship.


The Philippines last won the Cup in 1996.

Only gold medalists in the 2011 Indonesia Games and potential gold medalists are qualified in the lean 200-man contingent projected to compete in 28 out of 33 sports in Burma.
