Que rules Anvaya golf by 9 shots
MORONG, Bataan—Angelo Que capped his ICTSI Anvaya Cove Invitational romp with a four-under 68 and a nine-stroke victory over Toru Nakajima Saturday.
In winning, Que ended a 22-month dry spell on the very course where he tasted his last victory.
After fumbling with shaky windups in the first three days, Que finally unleashed a strong finishing kick—birdies in the last two holes—a feat he didn’t actually need given his near-insurmountable seven-stroke lead after 54 holes at Anvaya Cove Golf and Sports Club.
But the former Philippine Open champion still pressed his bid as if he were in a playoff hole, gunning down five birdies, including four at the back, against a lone bogey for a 33-35 card and a 15-under 273 aggregate.
The nine-shot victory was worth P650,000 out of the total P3.5 million purse in this kickoff leg of this year’s Philippine Golf Tour.
“I played according to my game plan and strategy,” said Que, who won two events in May 2015, including this one over Tony Lascuña before going on a slump.
Nakajima closed out with a 70 for second place and took home P430,000.
