Cash-rich ICTSI golf tees off

-A A +A

THE battle for the top $10,500 purse begins today in the $60,000 ICTSI Orchard Golf Championship with no less than a strong start expected from the crack international field, each hoping to put on low scores at the Palmer layout that requires solid shotmaking, accuracy and steady putting.

The organizing Asian Development Tour and the host club have made the par-72 a lot longer at 7,051 yards with a number of par 4s measuring up close to 500 yards and the greens expected to bring out the best or the worst from them with its sleek putting surface.

An early shootout looms among three of the fancied shotmakers from the starting 110-player cast as local ace Angelo Que drew ADT leg winner Brett Munson of the US and Englishman Peter Richardson, who finished joint second in last week’s ICTSI Riviera Classic ruled by Elmer Salvador, in the featured group at 11:15 a.m. on No. 1.

“I think I’ll have to play conservatively although I have a slight advantage when it comes to local knowledge. But it will boil down to putting,” said Que. (PR)
