Tony Lascuña needs only to churn out at least a fourth place finish to secure this year’s Order of Merit title but the four-leg winner has vowed to shoot for no less than the crown in the ICTSI Tournament Players Championship unfolding today (Wednesday) at Wack Wack East.
“Why settle for fourth when I can go for the win?” said Lascuña on the eve of the P3.5 championship serving as the final leg of this year’s 16-stage ICTSI Philippine Golf Tour.
With four leg wins, Lascuña has racked up earnings of P3,045,948 to stay on top of the OOM rankings, P488,694 ahead of second running and three-leg champion Clyde Mondilla.
A fourth place finish will net Lascuña P195,000, enough to thwart Mondilla even if the Del Monte ace wins the R650,000 top prize. But the Davaoeño ace, also a 3-time OOM winner, wants to reclaim the coveted individual crown in style with a victory in the closing leg of the circuit sponsored by ICTSI.
