/ 11:12 PM August 20, 2011

Tagaytay Highlands made the most of its hosting of the fifth leg of the Women’s Golf Association of the Philippines (WGAP) circuit as it captured the Class A crown while turning in a runner-up and third place finish in the two other divisions at Tagaytay Midlands recently.

Virginia Bote fired 39 Stableford points while Bernadette Wong, Rosalie Heo and Maripaz Domingo added 35, 33 and 32 points respectively for the Highlanders, who pooled a 139 to beat circuit-leading Alabang by four.

Jocelyn Garcia sizzled with 42 points to lead Alabang’s charge and cop the individual title. Marjorie Lopingco added a 32 while Marilyn Reyes and Rita Horan chipped in 31 and 30 points, respectively, for the Muntinlupa-based squad’s 135.

Canlubang drew 35 points apiece from Lucy Landicho and Lina de Guzman while Colo Ventosa shot a 31 and Tacing Laurel a 28 points for a 129 aggregate in the course-hopping event.


Armed Forces of the Philippines assembled a 134 and foiled Highland’s bid in Class B with Sta. Elena’s Lily Chan taking the individual crown with 37 points.

Villamor topped Class C with a 126 for a four-point victory over Alabang and six over the host club with AFP’s Nitz Salivio winning the individual title with 40 points.

Highlands’ 1-2-3 finish gave it a 17-point total after five legs, although defending overall champion Alabang remained in the lead with 28 points with two runner-up finishes and a third place effort at Highlands. Forest Hills is in third with 12 followed by AFP (10), Sta. Elena (9), Canlubang (8), Villamor (5) and Valley Golf (1) with Orchard and Riviera scoreless going into the final three legs of the circuit.

Marie Guerrero shot 39 points, Edlyn Robas had 34 and Venus Hufalar and Racquel Santos scored 31 and 30 points, respectively to power AFP to the win in Group B.
