Foreign aces target PGT Asia breakthru

MANILA, Philippines — Thai Pasavee Lertvilai and John Michael O’Toole of the US seek to finally end the locals’ domination of the PGT Asia as they lead the crack foreign cast vying in the ICTSI Eagle Ridge Invitational beginning tomorrow at the Eagle Ridge Golf and Country Club in Gen. Trias, Cavite.

The Filipinos swept the first five legs of the region’s newest circuit put up by ICTSI late last year and are keen on keeping their domination with another victory in the 72-hole $100,000 championship at the Aoki layout.

But Lertvilai and O’Toole along with the 36 other foreign players, including two invitees, are eager to finally strike this week and end a string of heartbreaks in the circuit organized by Pilipinas Golf Tournaments, Inc.

Lertvilai and O’Toole lost in a playoff to unheralded Rene Menor at PGTA Splendido last September with the former also falling short and settling for third at PGTA Wack Wack ruled by Tony Lascuna last November.

Indonesian Ian Andrew, who is also seeing action this week, placed third in the inaugural PGTA leg – the Aboitiz Invitational – at Manila Southwoods topped by Miguel Tabuena last August while Natchanon Varapornkittirat finished tied for seventh in the CAT Open at Luisita dominated by first-time winner Justin Quiban last December.
