Miguel makes history Diamond Motors golf
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.
