Canlubang pulled off a victory and two podium finishes as it dominated the 2019 Champion WGAP Circuit at home recently and gained a share of the overall lead with Tagaytay Highlands after two legs of the course-hopping tour.

Rosabel del Leon sizzled with 40 stableford points, while Colo Ventosa fired 39 points and Lea Suarez and Charo Buencamino each scored 38 as the Cangolf ladies pooled a 155 and edged the Fernando Air Base side by two in Class B.

The hosts also placed second to surprise Class C winner Wack Wack and settled for third in Class A behind Alabang and Sta. Elena as they racked up a total of six points to join the Highlanders on top in the early going of the eight-stage circuit organized and conducted by Women’s Golf Association of the Philippines.

Alabang drew 43 points from Marilyn Reyes while Rita Horan, Jocelyn Garcia and Lanfen Hsieh backed her up with 40, 37 and 36 points, respectively, as it assembled a 156 and posted a huge seven-point victory over Sta. Elena in the centerpiece Class A division.


The STE ladies, led by Therese Dabao’s 40 points, Carina Ricamonte’s 37 and Carmela Lee and Wilhermina Attwood’s identical 36 points, came up with a 149 while Cangolf got a pair of 38s from Recy Barrientos and Flor Silao and a couple of 36 points from Luisa Lorenzo and Ikuko Kito for a 138.

Reigning Asian Games golf medalist Yuka Saso, a member of the host squad, also graced the event and finished with 33 points as she primed up for the US Women’s Open beginning Thursday in South Carolina.
