Pagunsan guns for 4th straight win

JUVIC Pagunsan heads to Riviera this week looking to set a norm on the Philippine Golf Tour--win four straight championships--as he banners a stellar international field in the ICTSI Riviera Classic on Aug. 7, 2019 in Silang, Cavite.

Pagunsan swept the last three legs of the four-stage PGT Visayas swing in Bacolod, Negros and Iloilo last June, matching Tony Lascuña’s couple of streak of feats in 2014 and 2016 and making him the marked man in the P2.5-million event serving as the sixth leg of the 10th season of the country’s premier circuit.

But the long break could pave the way for a wide-open battle for the top P450,000 purse in the 72-hole championship sponsored by ICTSI with the cream of the crop, led by reigning Order of Merit champion Jobim Carlos, plus a slew of foreign aces, including Cebu leg titlist and Manila-based Guido Van der Valk of the Netherlands, eager and ready to foil Pagunsan’s drive for a fourth win in a row.
