Superal bags 2nd straight pro title


BINANGONGAN, Rizal – Princess Superal put on another brilliant windup to go two-for-two as pro on the Ladies Philippine Golf Tour, knocking down late birdies to edge amateur Pauline del Rosario by one on a solid five-under 67 and capture the ICTSI Eastridge Ladies Invitational crown at the Eastridge Golf Club here yesterday.

Superal banged in a five-footer on the par-3 16th and tapped in after her eagle-putt bid from 25 feet on the par-5 closing hole lipped out then watched former The Country Club teammate Del Rosario crack under pressure, completing her rally from one down with three holes to go to a one-shot victory on a bogey-free 34-33 card.

Del Rosario, who led Superal by two after 36 holes on a fiery 69 Thursday, also closed out with a flawless 70 but just couldn’t pull it off in the end, including a sorry miss on the 54th hole when she misread a side-hiller from just around three feet.

Superal also nipped Del Rosario and Thais Aunchisa Utama and Ajira Nualraksa in a four-way playoff to snare the ICTSI Sherwood Ladies Classic title at Sherwood where she launched her pro career three weeks ago.
