PGT Asia 2-leg swing up at Splendido, Riviera

MANILA, Philippines -  The PGT Asia Tour hopes to cash in on its successful launch at Southwoods last month as it holds two $100,000 events in the next two weeks beginning with the ICTSI Splendido Classic on Thursday at Taal Splendido Golf Club in Tagaytay.

A crack international field of 106 will slug it out for top honors at Splendido with four more players, including Aboitiz Invitational third placer Ian Andrew of Indonesia, joining the next tournament at the ICTSI Riviera Classic on Sept. 13-16.

An elite field pounded the kickoff leg host Southwoods’ Legends course with a run of under-par scores with Miguel Tabuena edging Angelo Que by one with a 23-under aggregate last month and 36 others turning in below par outputs last Aug. 18.

But it could get tougher this week with the Splendido layout offering a different kind of challenge with its up-and-down layout, deep ravines and tight fairways and the wind expected to come into play in all four days of the 72-hole championship sponsored by ICTSI.

But while Tabuena and Que, along with Andrew, won’t be around this week to honor previous commitments to play in various tours abroad, the field remains as competitive as ever with 48 foreign players from 17 nations ready to slug it out with the local aces for the rich $17,600 top purse.
