Saso still sizzling, leads by 1

Yuka Saso sustained her fiery form last week, carding a two-under-par 70 Wednesday to post a one-shot lead over reigning titlist Bianca Pagdanganan and four others in the 2018 Champion Infinity Philippine Ladies Open at Orchard Golf and Country Club in Cavite.

The Filipino-Japanese was hounded by poor putting in the early going at the backside of the Palmer layout, muffing three birdie chances, but hit birdies on Nos. 18, 1, 2 and 7 to compensate for missed green bogeys on the third and eighth.

“The greens were difficult to read, there were putts that I thought would have gone in. But that’s golf. I just have to putt better tomorrow (Thursday) to get a good score,” said Saso, who’s gunning for a second straight crown after humbling the pros in the ICTSI Ayala Greenfield Ladies Challenge, the kickoff leg of the 2018 Ladies Philippine Golf Tour, last Friday.
