After two bridesmaid finishes to open up the Philippine Golf Tour season, Guido van der Valk looms as the logical man to beat when the P2.5 million ICTSI Caliraya Springs Championship gets off the ground next week in Cavinti, Laguna.

“I think it’s a wide-open race,” Lascuña told the Inquirer in Filipino during a brief break in practice at Manila Southwoods. “A lot of players are really playing well.”
