PH golfers still ahead

Yuka Saso hobbled with a 77 after a superb 66 and Harmie Constantino wavered with a 75 after a 69 but Team Philippines held on to a seven-stroke lead over Korea and three others halfway through the World Junior Girls Championship in Mississaugua, Ontario, Canada Wednesday.

Sofia Legaspi, the other Filipina in the three-to-play, two-to-count format event, recovered from an 84 with a 75 and counted for the Team Phl’s 150 for a 285 total, anchored on Saso and Constantino’s solid nine-under 135 in the first round.

Korea rallied with a 142 while Sweden carded a 144 to tie China and the US, which turned in a pair of 146s, at 292 while Italy also rebounded with a 145 for a 294.
