Mondilla, Que set ICTSI Classic pace with 65s

LIPA City, Philippines  – Clyde Mondilla checked an impending skid while Angelo Que sizzled at the finish as they fired identical seven-under 65s to seize a three-stroke lead over Aussie Nathan Park at the start of the ICTSI Classic at the Mt. Malarayat’s composite course here yesterday.

Mondilla blew a two-eagle spiked eight-under card after 13 holes with back-to-back bogeys from No. 14 but birdied the par-5 18th of Mt. Lobo to join Que, who closed out with a birdie-eagle feat, at the helm in the early going of the P2 million tournament.

“I got a good short game and hardly made errors up to No. 13,” said the Del Monte ace.

Earlier, Que looked a lot less rusty coming off a three-week layoff, flashing a near-impeccable game that featured four birdies at the front, including three straight from No. 6. He birdied No. 10, dropped a stroke on the next but holed out with a birdie from five feet and an eagle off a solid 8-iron second shot from 172 yards to within 15 feet.

“I hit it pretty solid and I hope I can sustain it,” said Que, the Japan PGA Tour-based ace who dominated the Anvaya Cove Invitational in Bataan last February.

Park bucked a mediocre 36 start at the back with four birdies at Mt. Makulot, his 68 netting him solo third while seven others turned in identical 69s over the par-72 layout which virtually lay defenseless in the absence of the wind.
