Palanca boosts DLSZ interschool bid
PHILIPPE Palanca topscored for De La Salle Zobel as they nipped Ateneo by two points to stay on top in the Midgets 1 division of the ICTSI-JGFP Interschool golf championship at the South Links course in Las Piñas.
Palanca fired 50 while Jolo Magcalayo added 47 for DSLZ’s 141 for the day and 592 for four rounds.
That put Ateneo’s title retention bid in danger as the Blue Eagles managed just 139 for 581 with Aidric Chan unable to play. Carl Corpus made 54 and Marc Corrales had 47 but Riggs Illescas could only score a 38.
At Ayala Greenfields, Ateneo remained far ahead in Girls 1, Assumption kept a big lead in Girls 2 and Immaculate Concepcion Academy appeared beyond reach in Girls 3.
The Philippine Golf Foundation, Martin Lorenzo, Golf Depot and Inquirer Golf are also supporting the tournament.
Action resumes today with the juniors at Valley and Midgets 2 at Eastridge.
