La Salle snares inter-collegiate title
MANILA, Philippines—De La Salle University lived up to expectations as it toppled Lyceum, 3-1, in the 5th Inter-Collegiate Golf team match play championship recently hosted by the Philippine Golf Foundation (PGF).
The first round of the championship, which looked like a junior golf reunion with all the players coming from the jungolf program, saw the Pirates force a draw on the Green Archers’ home course at Sherwood Hills.
Lyceum’s Carlos Tinio III and Agustin Mata won the best ball format, 4 and 3, over La Salle’s Allan Guy and Gino Bunyi, while the Archers’ Marvin Mendoza and Eric Gallardo carved out a 1 up victory in the hi-low format over Patrick Uy and Lawrence Celestino.
Lyceum failed to turn things around at their home course at The Orchard, allowing La Salle to seal its victory.
