PAL Ladies Thursday
BACOLOD—Aside from precision, length will become a must off the tees starting tomorrow when the Philippine Airlines Ladies Interclub championship fires off at soggy Marapara layout here.
Heavy torrential rains the past two days have made the tight, tree-lined layout play harder, as most of the players in the 18-team field, led by “five-peat” seeking Southwoods-Masters, sampled the old course yesterday
The greens, though, have remained immaculate, with club management making sure that it rolls as pure as can be.
“It’s going to be a tough test for all of us,” Abegail Arevalo, the reigning Future Golf Club champion in the United States, told the Inquirer after practicing with the rest of the rock-solid SW-Masters team looking to win more convincingly this year.
Cebu Country Club will be bannered by LK Go, who is also a frontrunner for the individual title like Arevalo and SW-Masters and ICTSI-The Country Club teammate Sofia Chabon.
SW-Masters rallied for a one-point victory over Cebu CC last year at Alta Vista in Cebu, and the Carmona-based bets are looking to make it more convincing this time in the centerpiece Championship Division with a lineup that also include Missy Legaspi.
The team captains’ meeting will be held at 9 a.m. today. Tournament officials led by Henry Arabejo will propose holding the event for just two days—on Friday and Saturday—since the club can accommodate the entire field.
