Reigning back-to-back Order of Merit champion Tony Lascuna and three-time Asian Tour winner Angelo Que confirmed their participation in the International Container Terminal Services, Inc. (ICTSI) Iloilo Golf Challenge, boosting the cast in the P1 million event firing off on Wednesday at the Iloilo Golf and Country Club in Sta. Barbara.
But while Lascuna is seeking to nail a third crown after nine legs of the ICTSI Philippine Golf Tour, Que is still trying to put it all together for his first victory this season. With leg winners Elmer Salvador, Jay Bayron, Charles Hong and Rufino Bayron also in the fold, the battle for the top P200,000 purse in the 72-hole championship is expected to be wide-open.
“Despite the long break, we had been in constant training so we still expect a tightly fought contest in the next two weeks,” said Lascuna, who won at ICTSI Eagle Ridge and Valley legs of this year’s circuit sponsored by International Container Terminal Services, Inc.
“I still practice regularly and I’m hoping that something big happens the next two weeks,” said Que, whose best finish this year was joint third at ICTSI Eagle Ridge. “I’ve been working hard the past few so hopefully, I can finally win.”
