TOUGHENED by a series of competitive stints the past two months, Gio Gandionco and Princess Superal lead the Philippine campaign in the annual Callaway Junior World Golf Championsips starting Wednesday at 11 different venues in San Diego, California.

The Cebu-based Gandionco will be competing in the boys 15 to 17 years for the second time at Torrey Pines after a long summer campaign when he affirmed his status as the country’s best junior player. Superal steps on a new turf as she plays for the first time in the 15 to 17 group also at Torrey Pines.

Gandionco and Superal are two of the 12 players flown into California for free by Philippine Airlines as champions during the national qualifying last May at Manila Southwoods.


The others are Raymart Tolentino and Mia Legaspi in the (13 to 14); Christopher Popp and Harmie Constantino (11 to 12), Josh Jorge and Bernice Ilas (9 to 10), Jed Dy and Arnie Taguines (7 to 8).

“We have a strong team I believe and we look forward to some of our players joining the winners circle this coming week,” said Luigi Tabuena, president of the Junior Golf Foundation of the Philippines and head of the delegation supported by the International Terminal Container Services, Inc.
