TABUENA TOP PICK IN ICTSI WACK WACK

Philippine Daily Inquirer - - SPORTS -

Miguel Tabuena tries to com­pen­sate for his last-hole col­lapse at Manila South­woods last Sun­day as he shoots for a sec­ond PGT Asia crown in the ICTSI Wack Wack Cham­pi­onship blast­ing off Wed­nes­day at WW East course in Man­daluy­ong.

Tabuena ruled the in­au­gu­ral leg of the re­gion’s new­est cir­cuit, also at South­woods last Au­gust, be­fore the Rio Olympian shifted his cam­paign abroad in search of world rank­ing points.

He could’ve headed for this week’s $100,000 a win­ner but bo­geyed the par-5 18th of the Masters course and missed the Re­sorts World Manila Masters play­off which Korean-Amer­i­can Micah Shin won over Thai Arnond Vong­vanij.

But the 23-year-old 2015 Philip­pine Golf Tour Or­der of Merit win­ner shrugged off the set­back, say­ing it was a “learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.”

The 106-player field in­cludes 43 for­eign­ers from 16 coun­tries.

Tabuena drew four-time PGT OOM win­ner Tony Las­cuña and PGTA Splen­dido leg cham­pion Rene Menor in the 7:20 a.m. flight on No. 1.
