Buoyed by a joint runner-up finish in Japan, Lloyd Go is gearing up for a shot at a second Philippine Golf Tour (PGT) victory as he joins the competitive field in the ICTSI Villamor Philippine Masters starting May 21 at Villamor Golf Club in Pasay.

Go, who nailed his first PGT win at Palos Verdes last March with a commanding four-stroke victory, has since made impressive strides on the international stage. He tied for second place in the ABEMA Tour’s i Golf Shaper Challenge in Fukuoka last April, and tied for 32nd in Japan Golf Tour’s For The Players By The Players tournament last week.

The P2 million Philippine Masters marks the fourth leg of this year’s 10-stage circuit, organized by Pilipinas Golf Tournaments, Inc., and Go’s recent achievements make him one of the top contenders in the 72-hole championship.


Jhonnel Ababa, the reigning PGT Order of Merit champion, also enters the event with confidence after a dramatic victory over Guido van der Valk and Joenard Rates last year. Ababa’s triumph in the opening leg of this year’s Tour in Apo, Davao, sets him up as a formidable opponent.

Clyde Mondilla, who emerged victorious in the Tour’s third stop at Caliraya Springs last April, is also in excellent form following a recent stint in Japan, while Tony Lascuña, winner of the 2022 ICTSI Villamor Match Play Championship, likewise aims for a second win in the season after capturing the TCC Invitational crown last January.

Other bets to watch out for include Reymon Jaraula, Rupert Zaragosa, Zanieboy Gialon, Keanu Jahns, Hyun Ho Rho, Elee Bisera, Jerson Balasabas, Aidric Chan, Kuresh Samanodi, Kristoffer Arevalo, Josh Jorge, Marvin Dumandan, Sean Ramos, Ryan Monsalve and van der Valk. INQ
