04:58 AM March 04, 2019

Manila Southwoods captured the Founders division of the 33rd Philippine Airlines Senior Interclub golf team championships Saturday.

The Carmona-based squad collected 143 points at Alta Vista Golf Club for 530 overall, 12 points ahead of Valley Golf Club.


Theody Pascual led Southwoods with 52 points and got solid support from Ryan Abdon (48) and Bong Sison (43).

Valley matched Southwoods’ final round behind Eddy Manzanares (52), Abraham dela Cruz (46) and Jimmy Dy (45) to edge third placer Riviera Golf by just two points.


Riviera managed only 130 points through Chanyeong Gim (46), Efren Alvez (42) and Manuel Salgado (42) to settle for third place, a point ahead of Negros Occidental.

It was Manila Southwoods’ first win in the second-tier division.

“We are happy to win, but we’re still a long way to go to compete with the big boys,” said Thirdy Escaño, who made his seniors debut with Southwoods.

Other members of the Southwoods championship squad are Alexander Ignacio, Judd Roy, Danny Samaniego and John Bayani Fontanilla III.

In the Aviator division, Fil-Am Hawaii assembled 481 points to beat Zamboanga Golf (473). The other division winners were Baguio Country Club (441) in the Sportswriter and EZ Par Golf Club (395) in the Friendship.
