Tony Lascuña and Clyde Mondilla brace for a fierce showdown as they target win No. 3 on the ICTSI Philippine Golf Tour, which resumes Wednesday with the ICTSI Forest Hills Championship at the Forest Hills Golf and Country Club in Antipolo, Rizal.
But while Mondilla is coming off a three-week rest following a joint fourth finish at Eagle Ridge Invitational, Lascuña will be coming into the P2 million event toughened up by a Top 15 finish in last Sunday’s Queen’s Cup in Thailand.
Still, the rigors of playing four tough rounds in Thailand then competing with the local aces with hardly enough time to rest could take their toll on the 46-year-old Lascuña, who held off a rallying Japanese Ryoma Miki to snare the ICTSI Eagle Ridge crown by one.
That was the ace Davaoeño’s shotmaker’s second victory in the season after romping off with a four-stroke victory over Korean Hyeok Park Jun at Luisita last April.
