BCC retains Fil A lead, Mizuno resumes title quest-A A +A
Thursday, December 5, 2013
EVEN with only four men reporting for duty on day three, co-host team Baguio Country Club remained at pole position with just a round remaining in the 64th San Miguel Men’s Golf Invitational even as Mizuno Superstars gun for the titles in both Fil and Am Championship when action resumes today for the top flights.
Ely Lagman backstopped BCC's quest for the Fil-A title after making a 31 to lead the team to 100 and 310 points. With the 28 of Bong Mandapat, the 26 of Goodie Ignacio and 15 from Jay Coo, the team has a four shot lead on Eagle Masters I, down from eight with Philex Mines executive Euls Austin out due to a business commitment.
Eagle Masters had 104 points on the 32 of Roderick Lo, 26 from Lito Taojo and a pair of 23s from Lito Dublan and Randy Cadiogan as the team tallies 306 points and two up on Team Surigao I, which also made 104 points and 304 total.
Mizuno Superstars start day three with a seven shot lead in the premiere Fil Championships and action shifting at the longer and relatively easier CJH course.
Mizuno, which made 119 points on the 34 of Ace Stehmeier Wednesday at the BCC course for a 242 total, seeks a return to the top after losing the title to Forest Hills last year due to technicalities.
"We will just enjoy the game, which was the reason of our coming here where we want to improve our camaraderie," said captain Allan Pasion, who did not play Wednesday, of his team which took the Am Championship last year of the event presented by Toyota. (PR)
