Luisita seizes PAL Seniors lead
Cebu City – Reigning national seniors champion Rodel Mangulabnan and Benjie Sumulong powered Luisita into the lead going into the final round of the 33rd Philippine Airlines Senior Interclub golf team championships yesterday. Mangulabnan scored a one-over par 73 at the Club Filipino de Cebu to lead Luisita with 53 points, the best score so far in the tournament.
He had four birdies against three bogeys and double bogey, a resounding followup to his second-round 50 points.
Sumulong, smarting from his disqualification in the second round for signing a wrong scorecard, posted 50 points as Luisita took a six-point lead over Canlubang, 424-418.
Former pro Demy Saclot was the third scorer for Luisita with 47, but he cost the team two points for not picking up on the 15th hole. Chito Laureta did not count with 43.
