X1R-Mizuno drew 37 points from Justine Tambunting and a 33 from King Stehmeier to pad its lead to 22 over Che’Lus I after two rounds in the Fil-A division of the 70th Fil-Am Invitational held at the Camp John Hay Golf Club in Baguio City.
Playing captain Ace Stehmeier and Gab Macalagium each contributed 29 to account for the team’s 128 output and 253 total.
Che’Lus I assembled 111 for 231. Mike Castro topscored with 35 and was backed by Warren Pelletier’s 27, John Quinata’s 25 and Jesse Quenga 24.
Mizuno and Che’Lus I also went head to head in 2011 but the former won by count-back.
“It’s a comfortable lead going to BCC. But we can’t be complacent in the last two rounds. We need to continue to play and score well,” said team owner Brixton Aw.
Action shifts to the tougher Baguio Country Club layout on Monday.
