  • I am off to Boracay in a week and a half but my trip is not for pleasure! I will be competing for the ladies team of Alabang in the three day tournament to be held at the beautiful course of Fairways and Bluewaters. The tournament format does not take the players handicaps, so it would be good for the low handicappers like myself because there would be no sandbaggers. However, we are not the team that is favoured to win because Southwoods will be fielding at least three players with handicaps lower than 5.

  • It’s official we are the champions of the 2009 WGAP circuit! After winning the opening leg at our home course, the team never looked back and led the tournament from start to finish. However, it wasn’t a walk in the park for the team because the defending champions of Canlubang gave a good challenge especially at their home course wherein they almost swept all classes. We were only 2 points up going into the final leg at Sta. Elena. I am so proud that the team didn’t lose grip on the lead as we won both Class A and Class C divisions.

  • I played really well Wednesday, and it felt like dejavu because I was tied for the lead with Reg yet again. During that time, Boracay memories flashbacked when I played well for the Alabang team in the LuzViMin tournament. Thursday morning, I wasn’t feeling well, my legs were hurting since I am no longer used to walking for a full round because whenever me and my “lolas” would play we would always ride the cart. Right from the start, my putting was horrible. I was missing putts from everywhere.

  • I look forward to playing in the DHL Amateur Championship this February 10-12. Hopefully, I will play my best during the three day tournament. My stamina has always been the question in my game but lately I have been attending boot camp to strengthen my core muscles and my cardio. That’s the price to pay for not walking when you play! Hahaha. But slowly I am getting my old self back, I need to be back in shape because federation season is nearing and I don’t think I can take any more losses.

  • We are back!!! After the success of Season 4, we are continuing our golf adventure and moving forward with Season 5 to showcase the beautiful golf courses of the South. We are opening the season with the Luisita golf course located in Tarlac, its actually one of two courses designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr. here in Asia, so the design is very tricky and one of a kind . If I remember right the grass is carabao so it makes the playing conditions harder.
