BAGUIO—With overnight rains and thick fog enveloping this summer capital yesterday, Manila Southwoods-Masters extended its unprecedented PAL Ladies Interclub reign without breaking a sweat after final round play was called off at the Camp John Hay layout.

Tournament director Henry Arabelo deemed it best to cut the tournament to 54 holes with visibility practically zero until mid-morning, formally giving the Carmona-based lasses a sixth straight championship with Cebu Country Club winding up second yet again.

Crystal Faith Neri of Cebu CC, though, was crowned the individual champion after shooting a three-under-par 65 worth 57 points in the first round. It would have been an interesting clash with Del Rosario, who scored 56 in the second round, had the final round been held.
