Carmona, Cavite—The ICTSI Champion Tour kicks off its two-week swing here at Manila Southwoods with the crack international field, led by the fancied Thais and Taiwanese, putting premium on shot selection as they slug it out for top honours in wet condition in the $75,000 event starting today (Wednesday, July 18) here.

Antipolo—Jhonnel Ababa produced the lone bogey-free 67 card in tough condition to force a four-way tie for the lead as Kim Joo Hyung fell with a thud on a disastrous windup in an eventful third round of the ICTSI Forest Hills Championship at the Nicklaus course here yesterday.

Antipolo—Tony Lascuña hopes to end a long winless campaign with a victory at the ICTSI Forest Hills Championship, armed with a new putter and a confidence bolstered by his triumphs in what used to be a Philippine Golf Tour event the last two years at the Nicklaus course here.

But now serving as a leg of the PGT Asia, the $100,000 championship beginning today (Wednesday, July 11) could add to Lascuña’s string of heartbreaks with a slew of foreign aces and a bunch of local top guns all primed up for four days of battle at one of the country’s toughest courses.

After scoring a maiden victory in record fashion on the Philippine Golf Tour at Pueblo de Oro, Korean Kim Joo Hyung goes for another first—a PGT Asia diadem in the $100,000 ICTSI Forest Hills Championship beginning tomorrow (Wednesday, July 11) in Antipolo.

While he said he feels good about nailing his first win and becoming the youngest winner on the local circuit, the 16-year-old shotmaker has opted to downplay his chances for another title crack against a tougher field on a tougher Forest Hills Golf and Country Club’s Nicklaus course.

Cagayan de Oro—Kim Joo Hyung checked a shaky finish with back-to-back birdies, matching Jobim Carlos’ fiery windup to cling to a one-stroke lead with a 69 and stay on course for a breakthrough in the ICTSI Pueblo De Oro Championship here yesterday.

Kim, 16, flashed steely nerves under pressure, rebounding from a missed green bogey on No. 16 with birdies on the last two that somehow cushioned the impact of Carlos’ fiery windup that spiked the latter’s bogey-free 67 in another day of torrid scoring at the Pueblo De Oro layout.

Cagayan de Oro—Jobim Carlos dropped eight birdies before heavy rains fell and completed a stirring bogey-free 64, wresting a two-stroke lead over Korean Lee Song in the ICTSI Pueblo De Oro Championship here and setting in motion his drive for a second championship in three weeks on the Philippine Golf Tour.

Clyde Mondilla hopes to snap a string of poor finishes halfway through the season right at home as he rejoins the stellar field in the ICTSI Del Monte Championship unfolding tomorrow, Wednesday, June 27 at the Del Monte Golf Club in Manolo Fortich, Bukidnon.

JOBIM Carlos, fresh from a four-stroke romp at Apo, sets out for a second straight Philippine Golf Tour crown and third overall in the ICTSI Del Monte Championship, which returns to the tour calendar beginning Wednesday (June 27) at the Del Monte Golf Club in Manolo Fortich, Bukidnon.

Davao—Korean Park Jun Sung, who could not seem to get past the cutoff line in the combined tournaments of the Philippine Golf Tour and PGT Asia, took charge with a bogey-free five-under 67, leading the early surge of the lesser lights in the P3 million ICTSI Apo Golf Invitational here yesterday.

Carmona, Cavite—Premium will be on shotmaking with the long hitters from the crack international field expected to lead to assault on the Legends course in today’s (Tuesday, June 5) start of the ICTSI Manila Southwoods Golf Championship here.

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.

Silang, Cavite—Michael Bibat flashed a near-impeccable iron game and putting and tamed Langer’s tough backside with a 32, leading to a five-under 66 and a two-stroke edge over Englishman Grant Jackson and three other local aces at the start of the ICTSI Riviera Classic here yesterday.
