Pagunsan adds star power to Summit golf
LIPA City—Juvic Pagunsan signed up for the ICTSI Summit Point World 18 Challenge, completing another power-packed cast of local and foreign talents in a Philippine Golf Tour Asia event unfolding Wednesday at Summit Point Golf and Country Club here.
Holder of a record streak of four wins on the PGT, Pagunsan hopes to make the most of a break from his Japan PGA Tour campaign as he seeks top honors against the best and the brightest in the $100,000 championship that features three aces eyeing to become the lone two-leg winner in the third season of Asia’s newest circuit.
At least 15 countries will be represented in the 72-hole championship, counting Luisita and Taiwan leg champions Namchok Tantipokhakul and Wisut Artjanawat, both from Thailand, and Tony Lascuña, winner of the other Taiwan event last month.
Reigning Philippine Open champion Clyde Mondilla is also in the mix, guaranteeing that the Philippines will be represented well here.
Joenard Rates is the defending champion.
Former PGT Asia leg titlist Damien Jordan and David Gleeson, both from Australia, Americans Brett Munson, Joshua Salah and Lexus Keoninh, Dutch Guido Van der Valk and Korean-American Micah Shin are the other foreigners worth watching.
