Plana-Macalaguim tops SW Invitational
Junjun Plana and Gab Macalaguim went on to bag the overall low gross title while Richard Santos and Michael Miguel edged the Manolo Agojo-Joven Guevarra pair in a tiebreak to snare the overall net crown in the Southwoods Invitational at the Legends and Masters courses in Carmona, Cavite, over the weekend.
With no team able to mount a final day challenge on Saturday, Plana and Macalaguim cruised to a seven-point romp with a 161 total built around 84 points in best ball format at the Masters and 77 points in aggregate play at the Legends.
Justine Tambunting and Terrence Macatangay settled for second with a 154 (86-68), while Edsel Opulencia and Abe Avena carded a 153 (82-71) for third in the club’s first member-guest tournament after a two-year break because of the pandemic.
Santos-Miguel combined for a 180 (96-84), like Agojo-Guevarra, but won the net title with a lower team handicap.
Sharing the podium in the four-day event which drew a full-packed field of 400 players were Thirdy Escaño and Bong Tirol (Division I), Ian Tambunting and Raymond Lacdao (Division 2), Ian Arceo and Mike Ong (Division 3), Vince Siy and Francis Tanjangco (Division 4) while Agojo and Guevarra took the Division 5 plum.
