Fourteen-year-old Weiwei Gao tamed the treacherous layout of Alta Vista Golf and Country Club, shooting five-under-par 67 strokes, to lead the overall title contenders of the club’s annual Fun Golf Tournament last Saturday.

Gao made six birdies against a lone bogey. He went one-under-par after the first hole then completed the front nine at two-under-par with another birdie on the par-3 6th hole.

He opened the back nine with a birdie on the par-5 10th but bogeyed the par-4 12th, which was the lone blemish on his scorecard.

Gao knocked in three straight birdies on the 14th, 15th, and 16th to go three-under-par on the back nine.

Lawyer Marlo Cugtas set the pace for Class A with a net score of 66 strokes. Toby Florendo and Jay Lee both carded four-under-par 68 strokes.

Jun Zosa, who wore his traditional La Salle green attire, fired a net score of 65 strokes to lead class B. Lino Dagus made 68 while Al Alcibar had 70 strokes.

Jason Flores leads class C with a net score of 70 while Danny Aballe fired 71 strokes.

In the seniors’ division, tournament chairman Vicente Go fired a gross four-over-par 76 strokes to set the pace for this category exclusive to players aged 55 to 69 years old.

Setting the pace in the battle for the net honors are Rolando Alberto and Atty. Ellie Espinoza with 61 strokes each. Alberto had a gross 77 while Espinoza shot 78 strokes.

David Villono leads the super seniors (70 years old and above) category with a net score of 66 strokes. (PR)
