Pucay outguns Davao’s Salvador, wins ICTSI-F Hills crown

Davao's Salvador (left) congratulates Pucay.

ANTIPOLO – Mars Pucay outgunned Elmer Salvador and the hot-starting Artemio Murakami in their backnine shootout and fired a two-under par 70, finally snapping a long title drought on the local tour with a two-shot victory in the ICTSI Forest Hills Championship at the Forest Hills Golf Club here, May 28.

Pucay, tied with Salvador and four ahead of Murakami at the start of the final round, fell behind by one at the turn but pounced on Murakami and Salvador’s double-bogey mishaps on No. 12 for a crucial two-shot swing. He birdied the next to sit on a two-stroke cushion and went on to essay the two-stroke victory.
He pooled a seven-under 209 and took home the top P200,000 purse in a victory that ended a long title spell on the local circuit.
“I really can’t remember when I last won here but I’ve been waiting for this (win). I’m sure it will boost my confidence for the Asian Tour,” said Pucay, who is set to play for four consecutive weeks, including two on the Asian Tour stops in Taiwan and Thailand before heading back home for the ICTSI-Mt. Malarayat Classic of the Mercedes Benz Tour and the ICTSI Orchard Invitational next month.
Salvador, seeking his second leg win on this year’s ICTSI-Philippine Golf Tour after ruling the kickoff leg at Mt. Malarayat, seized the lead with a 34 at the front and stayed on top after No. 11.
But he sliced his drive on the tough par-4 12th, took a penalty drop and reached the green in four and two putted. He wound up with a 72 and settled for second with a five-under 211 worth P120,000 in the 54-hole tournament which served as the fourth leg of the circuit put up by International Container Terminal Services, Inc. and organized by Pilipinas Golf Tournaments.
“Sayang, I was thinking of using a 3-wood instead of a driver on No. 12. But I wanted to use a 7-iron on my second shot so I opted for a driver,” rued Salvador.
Murakami, who came from behind to snatch the Manila Southwoods title of the Mercedes Benz Tour recently, appeared headed for another come-from-behind win when he rallied from four shots down to move within a shot off Salvador with a five-birdie binge and a 31 after nine holes.
He caught up with Salvador with a birdie on the 10th but the US Open veteran and former winner of The Country Club Invitational stumbled with a bogey on the next and also made a 6 on No. 12 to reel back.
Murakami closed the backside with a 38 for a 69, settling for third at 212 and P65,000 in the event backed by MJ Carr Golf Management, Jaguar, Land Rover, Studio 23, Balls TV, Srixon/Cleveland Golf, Callaway Golf, Odyssey, Golf Punk, Business Mirror, Inquirer Golf Monthly, A Round of Golf, Pinoygolfer.com and Omnisource.
Clearly, the turning point was the tough par-4 12th.
While Salvador and Murakami sputtered with a pair of 6s, Pucay made a routine par.
“In the past, I easily get frustrated but now, I’ve been controlling my emotions and playing patiently,” said Pucay.
Benjie Magada carded a 70 for a 213 for fourth worth P50,000 while rookie pro Antonio Asistio II turned in his best finish so far at fifth at 216 after a 70 and took home P40,000.
Tony Lascuna matched par 72 and wound up solo sixth at 217 while Jay Bayron, winner here last year, fired a 71 and finished tied for seventh with Ferdie Aunzo, who had a 72.
Christopher delos Santos made a 74 and ended up ninth at 219 while Gene Bondoc shot the day’s other best score of 69 for 10th at 220.
Dante Becierra emerged the top amateur for the second straight time with a 228 for joint 21st place.(pr)

Shootout looms as Pucay, Davao’s Salvador remain tied

Mars Pucay
Davao's Elmer Salvador.

Mars Pucay moved within 18 holes away from ending a long slump on the local tour while Davao’s Elmer
Salvador poised himself to keep his winning ways as they fired identical 69s to remain tied at helm in the second round of the ICTSI Forest Hills Championship at the Forest Hills golf course in Antipolo, May 27.

Pucay, who charged home with an eagle-spiked 70 to gain a share of the first round lead with Elmer Salvador,
sustained his top form by ramming in four birdies, including a tap-in on the par-5 16 which he eagled Wednesday, to negate his lone bogey mishap on No. 4 in one of the early morning flights.

The former national champion wound up with a 34-35 round and assembled a 36-hole aggregate of five-under
139, which Salvador later matched behind an eagle-aided 69 that set up a duel for the top P200,000 purse between players shooting for a second win in four legs and trying to snap a long title drought.

“I need to shoot a 68 tomorrow(Friday) to beat Mars,” said the soft-spoken Salvador, who racked up three
victories last year, including the Philippine Open and two legs on the revival of the local circuit put up by International Container Terminal Services, Inc.

He also ruled the kickoff leg of this year’s tour at Mt. Malarayat.

But while Salvador is on a roll, Pucay is out to end a long spell.

“It’s been awhile since I won a local title so I’m looking forward to tomorrow (Friday),” said the 39-year-old Pucay, a veteran campaigner in the Asian Tour and the Mercedes Benz tour.

Pucay, a two-time World Cup veteran, last won in the 2009 Laem Chabang Championship in Thailand and finished
joint 12th in last week’s ICTSI-Riviera Classic.

He actually posted two victories on the Mercedes Tour in 2007, winning in Vietnam and at Mt. Malarayat
but has had a winless campaign on local soil the last few years, including in last year’s 10-leg circuit organized by Pilipinas Golf Tournaments.
He missed another eagle bid on the second hole but came through with a pair of long putts (30 feet) on Nos. 6
and 8 to get his title bid going in the P1 million event backed by MJ Carr Golf Management, Jaguar, Land Rover, Studio 23, Balls TV, Srixon/Cleveland Golf, Callaway Golf, Odyssey, Golf Punk, Business Mirror, Inquirer Golf Monthly, A
Round of Golf, Pinoygolfer.com and Omnisource.

The leading duo stayed four shots clear of third running Artemio Murakami (70) and Benjie Magada (71), who
both had 143, while Elmer Saban stood at 144 after a 71.

Ramil Bicera shot the day’s best score of four-under 68 to tie Christopher delos Santos, firing a 71, and Tony Lascuna, who had a 72, at 145, while Ferdie Aunzo, winner of the ICTSI-Royal Northwoods Classic last year, also shot a 71 to tie veteran Richard Sinfeugo (73) and rookie pro Antonio Asistio II (73) at 146.

Defending champion Jay Bayron and brother Rufino Bayron both carded 75s and dropped to 147.

Cassius Casas, winner of the pro-am event with amateur partners Rannie Carlos, Tonton San Diego and Alvin Buenaventura, bounced back from a disastrous 78 with a one-under 71 to be at 149 while Anthony Fernando (73), Joenard Rates (75) and Ebarra Quiachon (79) stood at 150.(pr)

Fernando completes wire-to-wire triumph, Davao’s Ababa at 3rd, Ikeda ends up joint 4th

Mhark Fernando pounced on a crucial three-shot swing on No. 14 to turn back local bet Mohd Iylia Jamil and complete a wire-to-wire triumph in the Malaysian Amateur Open Golf Championship with a closing 72 for a two-stroke victory in Lumut, Perak, Malaysia on Sunday.

Faced with a strong challenge from Malaysia’s national player, the 28-year-old Fernando blew his overnight one-shot lead and trailed by two after 13 holes. But the former national champion fought back with back-to-back birdies from No. 14 to regain the lead en route to the victory on a six-under 282 total.

“I didn’t play so well but I did have a strong finish,” said Fernando, who struggled with his shot selections in a windy
day at the Damai Laut Golf and Country Club.

The top ICTSI-Cangolf bet recovered from a pair of bogeys on Nos. 11 and 13 with a birdie on No. 14, which Iylia double-bogeyed, enabling Fernando to regain the lead before coasting to the win in the closing holes.

Iylia actually turned Fernando’s bogey mishap on the 13th into a two-shot swing as he came through with a birdie on the par-3 hole to gain a two-stroke lead only to yield it back just as quick in the next when he dropped two shots and the Filipino ace gained a stroke.

“The 14th is the key to my win as I hit an awesome second shot and I knew I had it then,” said Fernando.

The victory also completed the Philippines’ sweep of the Malaysian event after Fernando teamed up with reigning national champion Clyde Mondilla in winning the 36-hole team championship.

Iylia birdied the final hole and wound up with a one-over-par 73, settling for second with a 284 while Fernando’s teammate Jhonnel Ababa of Davao City rallied with a one-under 71 to share third place with Thai Supakorn Utaipat,
who carded a 74, at 292.

ICTSI-The Country Club’s Peter Villaber skied to a 77 and dropped to joint fifth with Malaysian Gavin Kyle Green, fumbling with a 76, with 293.

Cebuana Lovelynn Guioguio also blew her title bid in the ladies  side of the tournament as the top ICTSI bet, just one stroke behind Sharon Lau and Yupaporn Kawinpakorn at the start of the final round, faltered with an 82
and wound up seventh with 227.

Thidapa Suwannapura shot a 70 to claim the crown, two shots over Yupaporn Kawinpakorn, who limped with a 75, while Dabawenya Chihiro Ikeda ended up joint fourth with Sharon Lau (80) at 224 after a 75.(pr)
