Miguel makes his­tory Di­a­mond Mo­tors golf

Sun.Star Cagayan de Oro - - Prime Sports -

I had the rare honor of play­ing golf with Miguel Tabuena on Fri­day. Oc­ca­sion was the 17th Di­a­mond Mo­tors In­vi­ta­tion­als at the Manila Golf Club in­side plush Forbes Park, Makati City.

You just don’t get to play that eas­ily at MGC, whose equiv­a­lent in stature and, yes, snooti­ness is Au­gusta Na­tional in Au­gusta, Ge­or­gia. Au­gusta is, of course, home of the Masters, the world’s most pres­ti­gious event.

My grat­i­tude there­fore goes enor­mously to Ge­orge Blay­lock, Di­a­mond’s top hon­cho, who even so gra­ciously in­cluded me in his flight that also in­cluded Mat­suhiro Oshikiri, the jolly pres­i­dent of Mit­subishi Mo­tors Philip­pines.

And also to my dear old friend Art Bal­madrid, who re­minded me force­fully that I shouldn’t miss the event as it also af­forded me the chance to see dear buddy Froi Dy­tian­quin again. Thanks, Art.

At the Manila Golf Club, you walk vir­tu­ally on rich man’s land. Rodeo Drive. Fifth Av­enue.

How many celebri­ties—big shots in show
