Vil­lamor backs Phl Masters II

The Philippine Star - - SPORTS - FRI­DAY | MAY 18, 2018

The Vil­lamor Golf Club has re-af­firmed its com­mit­ment and sup­port to the ICTSI Vil­lamor Philip­pine Masters fol­low­ing its suc­cess­ful re­vival last year, guar­an­tee­ing its stag­ing until next sea­son with an eye of mak­ing VGC a top golf­ing des­ti­na­tion.

“It’s all sys­tems go. We’ll be host­ing the Phl Masters in 2018 and 2019,” said Lt. Gen. Galileo Ger­ard Kin­ta­nar Jr., com­mand­ing gen­eral of the Philip­pine Air Force. “That’s our com­mit­ment. The PAF ac­knowl­edges that Vil­lamor is the Masters orig­i­nal home and we are happy to be part of this in­ter­na­tional event.”

Clyde Mondilla edged Tony Las­cuña, Jhon­nel Ababa and Amer­i­can Nicolas Paez to win the Masters’ re­vival on a six-un­der 282 ag­gre­gate with or­ga­niz­ers ex­pect­ing a fiercer, tougher bat­tle for top hon­ors in the rich event fir­ing off May 23.

PGT gen­eral man­ager Colo Ven­tosa said some of the foreign play­ers who com­peted last year will be back in the four-day cham­pi­onship over a rel­a­tively flat but chal­leng­ing lay­out noted for its length, tight tree-lined fairways and roughs that will surely pro­vide prob­lems even for best of the best. “We’ll have some of the in­ter­na­tional play­ers who joined last year in the field again,” said Ven­tosa, who re­cently met with Kin­ta­nar and Vil­lamor GM Guillermo Molina Jr. to fi­nal­ize plans and en­sure the smooth stag­ing of the blue-rib­bon event spon­sored by ICTSI.
