Superal ready for Riviera leg


Princess Superal girds for another battle, armed with a form she has whipped to top competitiv­e level and which she hopes to flaunt in the last of two Ladies Philippine Golf Tour bubble tournament­s – the ICTSI Riviera Championsh­ip beginning Dec. 8 in Silang, Cavite.

But while she ran away with a five- stroke triumph in the ICTSI Riviera Invitation­al Challenge at the Couples course three weeks ago, the reigning Order of Merit champion expects her rivals to mount a spirited fightback on a Langer course that favors no particular player and where emphasis ranges from length, short game, poise and mental toughness.

Still, Superal said she feels good about her chances, given the time and effort she had spent in sharpening her all-around game, including putting, during the break.

“I think the key (to every victory) is preparatio­n,” said Superal, who shuttles to and from Orchard and Manila Southwoods to stay in competitiv­e form.

Heading to next week’s 54-hole championsh­ip, the 22- year- old shotmaker is taking the same approach – train hard, stay confident and have a positive mindset.

“During this pandemic, I’m able to refresh my mind and set new goals,” she said.
