Cyna shoots 71 to lead by eight in ICTSI Ladies-A A +A
Thursday, August 29, 2013
MANILA—Cyna Rodriguez more than doubled her overnight lead despite a bogey-bogey finish on the tough putting surface of the Aoki layout, carding a one-under 71 and padding her lead to eight over Jayvie Agojo and Apple Fudolin in the second round of the ICTSI Ladies PGT Eagle Ridge golf championship in Gen. Trias, Cavite yesterday.
Rodriguez, who opened a three-shot cushion over Agojo with a three-under 69 Wednesday, threatened to blow away the field with another three-under card after 11 holes. But the former Philippine Ladies Open made a shaky finish and ended up with a 71.
Still, her 140 aggregate proved enough to put her way ahead as Agojo floundered with a four-over 76, enabling the young Fudolin to forge a tie at 148 with a gutsy even par 72.
“It’s hard to putt because the greens are unpredictable. Some are fast, others are slow but most are sloping,” said Rodriguez, now 18 holes away from clinching her pro crown and a rich purse of P100,000 on her very first try.
Rodriguez’s 69 and 71 were the only under-par rounds posted so far over 36 holes. (PR)
