Que seizes clubhouse lead
Angelo Que took the clubhouse lead over Aussie Damien Jordan and Zanieboy Gialon when play was stopped due to heavy rain halfway through the $100,000 Aboitiz Invitational at the Orchard’s Palmer course in Cavite Thursday.
The long-hitting, late-starting Japan PGA Tour campaigner extended his birdie-binge in his solid first round 65 with back-to-back feats from No. 2 to draw level with Jordan and Gialon, who had wrapped up their morning rounds with 70 and 71, respectively, before play was stopped due to lightning.
Que actually stumbled with his first bogey in 23 holes on No. 5 at the resumption of play but quickly got his game going again, hitting three straight birdies from No. 6 from short range to move ahead by three.
Two bogeys at the back slowed his charge until he hit another birdie on No. 15 to go three-under for the day before play was suspended due to heavy rain and darkness.
