Salvador seizes early lead at Eagle ridge

Elmer Salvador bucked windy condition to card a five-under-par 67 and lead Jhonnel Ababa by one shot on Wednesday in the ICTSI Eagle Ridge Invitational at Eagle Ridge Golf and Country Club’s Aoki course in Gen. Trias, Cavite.

Salvador, the 2009 Philippine Open winner who had three top 10 finishes in the first five legs of the inaugural Philippine Golf Tour (PGT) Asia late last year, birdied six of the first 12 holes to take early control in the $100,000 event.

Out to break a winless spell on the PGT since last year, Salvador bogeyed Nos. 14 and 17 against another birdie on No. 15.

Still, Salvador’s 32-35 card put him ahead of Ababa, who birdied the par-3 17th for 68.

“I played solid, everything was in place, including my irons and putting,” said Salvador, who last won at Splendido in 2016.
