Young gun Clyde Mondilla bested Miguel Tabuena and grizzled veteran Tony Lascuña in the $60,000 ICTSI Manila Southwoods Championships held in Carmona, Cavite in May.
Mondilla relishes that victory, “It was a good fight between Miguel Tabuena, Tony Lascuña and me. I managed to pull away with a 1. 22-under,” the 23-year old Del Monte, Bukidnon native said.
Right now, he is aiming to join the PGA Tour and compete in America.
Mondilla started playing golf at six years of age under the tutelage of his pro golfer father Arsenio Mondilla. He looks up to Filipino-Australian Jason Day as his favorite golfer. Besides raising pitbulls, he has no other preoccupation outside of golf.
He turned pro at 18, honing his skills by practicing six hours a day except on Sundays.
“You need to work,” Mondilla said as a parting shot pertaining to his daily practice. “To me, this is our job.”
