Ramos tees off in search of third straight crown

/ 05:45 AM November 09, 2018

Sean Ramos seeks to cap a strong season-ending campaign with another victory while Nicole Abelar and Sofia Legaspi brace for a showdown in the women’s side of the Riviera MVPSF Amateur Championship which starts on Friday at Riviera’s Langer course in Silang, Cavite.

Ramos ruled the Cangolf Am Open in wire-to-wire fashion then edged Josh Jorge by one to capture the Northern Luzon Regional at Beverly Place Golf Club last month, making the Orchard bet the marked man in the 54-hole championship presented by the MVP Sports Foundation.

But he will be tested by the 24-strong field in the championship division with Aidric Chan also coming into the event carrying the momentum of two low amateur feats in the country’s pro circuit recently.

“My experience gained in the Philippine Golf Tour made me more mature as a player, which will surely help me with my chances,” said Chan.

Jorge is also in the fold, along with reigning PH Amateur Open Match Play winner Carl Corpus, Luigi Wong, David Guangko, Miguel Olivarez-Ilas, Rald Sarmiento, Lanz Uy, Leandro Bagtas, Masaichi Otake and Aldo Barro—all of them set for three days of a battle of wits at the demanding par-71 layout.

Abelar and Legaspi, meanwhile, banner the equally tough field in their side of the competition with the former shooting for a follow-up to her Cangolf Am triumph last month and the latter out to defend the crown she won over Kayla Nocum via playoff last year.
