Guido van der Valk and Zanieboy Gialon battled back from seven strokes down with a pair of 66s in the wind while Tony Lascuña mounted his own fightback with a 68 as they forced a four-way tie with Frankie Miñoza to set up a wild, frantic finish in the ICTSI Negros Occidental Golf Classic presented by MORE Power on Friday in Bacolod.

Minoza, who surged ahead by three after 36 holes on 68-69 cards, actually threatened to blow the field away with birdies in the first two holes for a huge five-shot lead. But he failed to sustain his charge at the tricky Marapara layout, which bit back and the multi-titled campaigner hobbled with four bogeys and a double bogey against one more birdie for a 73.
