  • Sumcad charges back with 69

    Orlan Sumcad recovered from a horrid second round stint with a three-under 69 yesterday, banking on a near-impeccable long game and bucking tough pin placements to force a tie with Jobim Carlos in the P3 million ICTSI Villamor Philippine Masters heading to another thriller of a finish at the Villamor Golf Club.

  • SW, CCC renew rivalry at PAL Ladies Interclub

    Manila Southwoods-Masters and Cebu Country Club renew their rivalry Tuesday at the start of the 11th Philippine Airlines (PAL) Ladies Interclub golf team championship at the Camp John Hay Golf Club in Baguio City.

    The SW-Masters squad is gunning for a record sixth straight title against a team it beat by an average of 2.5 points in the last two years.

  • Tabuena firms up ICTSI golf cast

    MIGUEL Tabuena hopes to cash in on his impressive run of form at Luisita as he joins the elite international cast clashing in the $60,000 ICTSI Luisita Championship beginning tomorrow (Wednesday) at the Luisita Golf and Country Club.

    The 22-year-old shotmaker swept two events at the Tarlac layout in 2015, running away with the Central Azucarera de Tarlac Open then besting a tough field to rule the rain-shortened Philippine Open. He, however, campaigned abroad and missed Luisita’s two-event hosting last year.

  • Testy day for PH bets at world golf

    LUBAO, Pampanga—Former world junior golf champion Rupert Zaragosa matched par-72, Taipei Universiade campaigner Jonas Christian Magcalayo struggled with a 76 and Lanz William Uy had a 77 on another testy day for the Filipinos in the 2018 FISU World University Golf Championship at the Pradera Verde Golf and Country Club here Thursday.

  • Tiger Woods says back is 'progressing,' won't commit to return date

    RIDGEDALE, Mo. -- In front of a large crowd gathered for his latest course design announcement, Tiger Woods took two swings into a par-3 hole and remained noncommittal about his return to competitive golf.

    "The back is progressing," he said. "I have good days and bad days. I've had three back operations and that's just kind of the nature of the business, unfortunately. That's all I can say."

  • Tiger Woods set to announce public course design plans next week

    Tiger Woods is ready to design a public golf course and, according to a tweet on Wednesday, he'll be making an announcement about it next week.

  • Tiger Woods’ career might be over. But we should let him say that instead of telling him.

    Golfers rarely fully retire and make an announcement saying they’re done. A bad back and a demanding golf world may not allow Tiger Woods that luxury.

    There aren’t teary-eyed retirement press conferences in golf. It’s rare to just completely stop playing any competitive events. There’s no Elway “I can't do it any more” or Favre-ian back-and-forth declarations because you never really have to provide that kind of full-stop clarity to the masses. That clarity may often never come to the player himself, either.

  • Tight finish seen in Delimondo golf

    THE touring pros take time out from their chase of individual honors as they test their mettle in team play with their amateur partners in the Delimondo National Pro-am slated May 3-5 at Splendido Taal Golf Club in Laurel, Batangas.

    Pals Tonton Asistio and Jude Eustaquio edged Jelbert Gamolo and Jolo Magcalayo in sudden death in last year’s inaugural staging of the event with the same tight finish expected in the upcoming second edition of the three-day championship sponsored by Delimondo, the premier corned beef.

  • Wild finish looms as Aussie leads

    Silang, Cavite—Rookie PGT Asia campaigner Damien Jordan sustained his eagle spree in another hot, windy day, hitting a third one to save a 71 and grab a one-stroke lead over come-backing Michael Bibat and a steady John Michael O’Toole of the US in the third round of the ICTSI Riviera Classic yesterday.
