NCR squads rule ICTSI Mindanao jungolf
Manila-based teams dominated action as expected with Navy and Orchard cornering the Division 1 and 2 titles, respectively, in the ICTSI Mindanao Junior Open golf championships co-hosted by Apo Golf Club and Rancho Palos Verdes GCC in Davao recently.
Josh Jorge, Sean Ramos, Joaquin Gomez and Sean Granada joined hands to give Navy a 20-point win over Apo in Division 1 of the tournament conducted by The Junior Golfers League that drew 85 players from eight clubs.
Navy totaled 415 from round 1 at Apo and rounds 2 and 3 at Palos Verdes against the 395 of Apo. Navy 2 finished third at 369 while Apo and Pueblo de Oro tied for fourth at 364.
Behind the steady play of Eagle Ace Superal, Orchard roared to a lopsided win in Division 2 of the event sponsored by ICTSI Foundation and backed by Maxe Bed & Breakfast, Golf Depot, PacSports and Inquirer Golf.
Superal, Joaquin Hernandez, Zachary Castro and Santino Magtalas pooled 432, leaving Apo (327) and Eastridge (316) eating their dust.
The Mindanao bets matched the five wins of the NCR players in the individual competition.
Pamela Mariano of Del Monte won girls’ Class A, Florence Yvon Bisera paced Class B, Ely Bisera ruled boys’ Class A, Alessandra Nagayo of Apo won girls’ Class C and Isabela Friis of Palos Verdes topped girls’ Class F.
