Tuesday, July 17, 2012
CEBU City-based Bayani Garcia steered Thank God It's Saturday (TGIS) 1 team to win the top Eagle Division title of the 5th Mindanao Chairman's Cup, "The Philsaga Challenge", held at the Apo Golf & Country Club and Rancho Palos Verdes Golf and Country Club over the weekend.
Garcia also captured the individual highest pointer award in the same division of the golf fest organized by Pogi Boys headed by chair Col. Sammy Afdal of Philsaga Mining Corporation.
"This is my first individual title. The winning formula was the whole team. Everyone did their part and played very solidly, especially, during the last day where we overcame a 13-point deficit and won by two," Garcia said in text messages to Sun.Star Davao on Monday.
Other members of the TGIS 1 team were Davao City golfers Toffee Tionko, Peter Pineda, Eric Noh and Karloz Alba.
Garcia said he was the only Cebuano in the Dabawenyo-laden champion squad, adding: "I'm very close to them (his teammates) because I spent my college life in Davao and forged good relationships with the Davao golfers." (MLSA)
