Having snapped a long title spell, Chihiro Ikeda seeks to set up a win streak this time, shooting for a second straight victory on the Ladies Philippine Golf Tour in the ICTSI Malarayat Ladies Classic unfolding tomorrow At the Mt. Malarayat composite courses in Lipa, Batangas.
It took Ikeda, a former amateur hotshot and a SEA Games individual medalist, more than three years to nail the elusive a pro victory, posting a wire-to-wire triumph in the ICTSI Orchard Golf Championship in Cavite last month.
She hopes her three-stroke romp over Lovelynn Guioguio will fuel more victories for the Fil-Japanese shotmaker.
“One win gives you a different kind of push. Now, I’m more inspired to train and compete,” said Ikeda. “I just couldn’t wait to play again.”
