Pagdanganan, Dy rule nat’l doubles
Bianca Pagdanganan and Jed Dy combined superbly in foursome, coming through with a two-under 66 and turning what was expected to be a fierce, down-to-the-wire finish into a runaway seven-shot triumph in the National Doubles Amateur Golf Championship at Camp Aguinaldo Golf Club.
Just one up on Jet Hernandez and Josh Jorge after the aggregate play Friday, Pagdanganan and Dy broke a run of pars with an eagle on the par-5 18th for a triumphant first teamup between an Asian Games bronze medalist and a former Junior World champion.
With their 63 in four-ball and 140 in aggregate formats, Pagdanganan and Dy finished with a 269 total, beating the Hernandez-Jorge pair by seven.
