Pa­gun­san, Que make cut in rain-hit Tai­heiyo Mas­ters

The Philippine Star - - SPORTS - – Dante Navarro

Ju­vic Pa­gun­san siz­zled at the fin­ish to save a 73 while An­gelo Que blew a two-un­der card with two bo­geys in the last three for a 70 as the Filipino bets ad­vanced at re­sump­tion of the weather-in­ter­rupted VISA Tai­heiyo Mas­ters in Shizuoka, Ja­pan early yes­ter­day.

Pa­gun­san, who shot a 69 in the first round but strug­gled with a back­side start of 40 in de­mand­ing con­di­tions Fri­day, birdied the last two holes at the front at the com­ple­tion of his sec­ond round play. He pooled a 142 but stood too far be­hind at joint 39th, 10 strokes off Shota Akiyoshi, who carded a 68 for a 132.

Que’s shaky fin­ish, on the other hand, dropped the re­cent TOP Cup Tokai win­ner to a share of 47th at 143, just one shot bet­ter than the cut­off score in the $1.8 mil­lion tour­na­ment.

Bad weather, how­ever, forced the or­ga­niz­ers to halt play in the third round at presstime.
