Luisita takes lead
Cebu - Order was restored at the 33rd Philippine Airlines Seniors Interclub golf team championships last Feb. 28 with Luisita taking a seven-point lead over long-time rival Canlubang following an impressive outing at the Club Filipino de Cebu.
The Tarlac-based squad collected 147 points, a huge improvement from its opening day 138 to reach the halfway mark with 285 points.
Benjie Sumulong carded three birdies against three bogeys and a double bogey to lead Luisita with 52 points.
Reigning national seniors champion Rodel Mangulabnan added 50 and former pro Demy Saclot rounded out scoring with 45. Rafael Garcia did not count with 43. Defending champion Canlubang struggled for the second straight day, scoring 140 behind a pair of 48s from Abe Rosal and Damasus Wong and a 44 from Zaldy Villa.
“We played better today and it’s fortunate that we are leading by seven,” said Luisita non-playing captain Jeric Hechanova. “The course was just playing tough.”
