Mondilla caps ‘Merit’ season with 4th crown

Lipa, Batangas—Clyde Mondilla left no doubt as to who is king of the 2017 Philippine Golf Tour on Friday.

Thriving under pressure, Mondilla birdied four of his last five holes to thwart a charging Jerson Balasabas for The Players Championship crown at Summit Point Golf Club here.

Clyde Mondilla.
The late flurry propelled Mondilla to a 67, a 17-under 271 total, and a three-shot victory over Balasabas, formalizing his ascension as Order of Merit champion with his fourth title of the season.

Still improving at 24 years old, Mondilla also won at Manila Southwoods, Villamor and at Riviera (PGT Asia Tour) two weeks ago to actually render his performance in the season-ending 10th leg immaterial.

But Mondilla wanted a grand celebration for his coronation.
