Action in the Junior PGT Series resumes at Mount Malarayat Golf and Country Club in Lipa City, Batangas Friday with the 13-14 year-old bidders clashing for top honors in both the boys’ and girls’ divisions at the composite Mt. Makulot and Mt. Lobo courses.
Heading the boys’ cast are Patrick Tambalque, Gabriel Handog, Tristan Padilla and Clark Bayani while Rafa Anciano and Levonne Talion lead the chase in the girls’ side of the 18-hole tournament to be played under the Modified Stableford scoring system.
Registration starts at 10 a.m. with competition to fire off at 11 a.m. Green fees and lunch will be covered by the JPGT.
Joining the hunt in the boys’ competition are Felix Saludar, Santi Asuncion, Javier Villavicencio, Sebastian Saycon, Alexander Crisostomo, Andrei Sulanik, Bien Fajardo and Rafael Leonio.
Organized by the Philippine Golf Tour under the ICTSI golf program, the junior series kicked off at The Country Club in Laguna last January with the drive-chip-and-putt competition.
The 9-10 and 11-12 age groupers then took center stage in the last JPGT Series at Caliraya Springs last month with Vito Sarines and Rafella Batican sharing the crowns in the younger category and Mona Sarines and Ralph Batican dominating the other division.
Next up is another 18-hole competition, this time featuring the 15-18 division for boys and girls back at Caliraya Springs in Cavinti, Laguna on June 12 with Mt. Malarayat hosting the next stop again on June 25.
