LPGT restarts with two tournaments
The Ladies Philippine Golf Tour (LPGT) makes its much-awaited restart next month with a two-tournament swing at Eagle Ridge and Tagaytay Highlands.
Princess Superal swept the two-leg resumption of the Ladies PGT at Sherwood Hills and at Eagle Ridge’s Norman course three months ago before the organizing Pilipinas Golf Tournaments Inc. (PGTI) suspended play again due to the spike of COVID-19 infections that forced a second lockdown in NCR Plus.
The national government, with its mass vaccination program in full throttle, has recently downgraded the alert level system in 14 provinces and five cities, paving the way for the resumption of the ladies pro circuit, among other sporting events.
The PGTI has reiterated its commitment to enforce strict guidelines and protocols to ensure the health and safety of all those involved.
“We’re very happy and grateful for the tour resumption,” said Superal, who held off Chanelle Avaricio by one at Sherwood then beat her again by three at Eagle Ridge last July.
The Eagle Ridge Ladies Classic on Nov. 2 to 5 at Aoki layout will thus mark LPGT’s third restart while Tagaytay Highlands will host the next stop on Nov. 8 to 11.
The PGTI is likewise finalizing details to stage two more tournaments back at Riviera, also next month, that would keep the compact ladies field busy before the holiday season.
