Mondilla rejoins PGT Asia hunt at Pradera

MANILA, Philippines — Clyde Mondilla hopes to turn his brief Asian Tour stint into a positive drive as he resumes his hunt for a second Philippine Golf Tour Asia crown in the ICTSI Pradera Verde Classic beginning tomorrow in Lubao, Pampanga.

Mondilla skipped last week’s PGTA’s sixth leg at Eagle Ridge to compete in the Singapore Open against some of the world’s best players, including eventual winner and reigning Masters champion Sergio Garcia. But despite missing the cut by six, the Del Monte ace remains confident of his chances heading to this week’s $100,000 event serving as the seventh leg of the region’s newest circuit put up by ICTSI.

“It was a great experience and it was really a different level. One has to be tough and well prepared,” said Mondilla, the reigning PGT Order of Merit winner. “Though I missed the cut, I learned so many things which I’m sure would make me a better player.”

But PGTA Riviera leg winner will be up against a crack field that includes four of the five other winners of the inaugural tour, all eager to become the first two-leg champion along with a host of others seeking to join the elite circle of PGTA victors.

Jhonnel Ababa, for one, is upbeat of his bid for a second straight PGTA plum after fashioning out a record seven-stroke romp at Eagle Ridge where he emerged as the only player to shoot under-par scores in all four days.
