Mondilla seeks 3rd win in row

Clyde Mondilla hopes to ride the momentum of his recent back-to-back victories at Southwoods and Villamor as he guns for a third straight victory in the ICTSI Calatagan Golf Challenge starting tomorrow at the Calatagan Golf Club in Batangas.

One thing going for the 24-year-old Del Monte ace in the 72-hole championship offering a total pot of P2.5 million is that he’ll be playing on a course he tamed with a 17-under 271 total en route to posting a huge eight-stroke victory over Jhonnel Ababa last year.

With his pair of one-stroke triumphs at the ICTSI Manila Southwoods Championship last month and at the revival of the Philippine Masters two weeks ago, Mondilla will not only have the proverbial momentum on his side but also the psychological edge.

Tony Lascuña admits that with Mondilla playing in some kind of a zone, it makes him doubly tough to beat but the veteran campaigner wants to focus on his game, particularly putting, as he goes for a follow up to his Manila Masters triumph at Eastridge last April.

“When you’re on top of your game, you’ll be tough to beat. But I still like my chances although I need to polish my putting to get another crack (at the crown),” said Lascuña.
