Mondilla up by 3 as rivals waver

LIPA City, Batangas, Philippines — Clyde Mondilla put on a strong finishing kick to card a 69 and widen his lead to three as his rivals floundered at the finish in the third round of the ICTSI Players Championship at the Summit Point Golf Club yesterday.

Dino Villanueva pressed his bid early with three birdies in the first seven holes but tumbled with a backside 41 and a 75 while Jay Bayron sizzled in the heat with a 67 but blew his hot charge with a last-hole bogey.

With Mondilla birdying two of the last five holes, including the tough par-4 18th, the Del Monte ace capped an eagle-spiked 35-34 card and moved three shots ahead  of Bayron at 12-under 204 with 18 holes to play in the P3 million event sponsored by ICTSI.

“I’m very confident coming off a win (at ICTSI Riviera),” said Mondilla, who took a step closer to completing a grand coronation as this year’s Philippine Golf Tour Order of Merit champion with a victory here.

“But I have to play solid tomorrow (today) and watch out for Jay and Guido, who might sneak in and spoil my bid,” added Mondilla, who eagled the par-5 No. 3 from eight feet on a solid 7-iron second shot from 206 yards.
