Wack Wack shines AS Sta. Elena, F. Hills gain
Wack Wack pulled off a rare victory at home but Sta. Elena and Forest Hills came away solid finishes to press their respective charges in the overall race after six legs of the 2018 WGAP Circuit at WW West Course in Mandaluyong City recently.
The hosts broke a run of winless campaign by ruling Class B on a 150 with Andrea Dy Buncio firing 39 Stableford points, and Jay Crisologo, Sophia Araneta and Monique Arroyo adding 38, 37 and 36 points, respectively, as they edged their rivals from Forest Hills (148) and Sta. Elena (147).
But the Sta. Elena side struck back in Classes A and C which they ruled via a pair of one-point escapes, both over Forest Hills, in what proved to be the most tightly fought leg in the annual tournament organized and conducted by the Women’s Golf Association of the Philippines.
Sta. Elena, behind Candice Yulo and Caret Ricamonte’s 36 and 35 points, respectively, and a pair of 32 points from Rio Co and Marit Yuchengco, pooled a 135 and nipped Forest Hills (134).
