    Fernando, pals rule ICTSI Anvaya Cove pro-am

    Mhark Fernando complemented well with amateur partners Luis Ramirez, Benigno Victorio and Rolen Paulino as they pooled a 20-under 52 to rule the ICTSI Anvaya Cove Invitational pro-am tournament at Anvaya Cove Golf and Sports Club in Morong, Bataan recently.

    Marvin Dumandan and teammates Bienvenido Perez, Jimmy Bustamante and Eimie Hedeager assembled a 52 to place second while Jhonnel Ababa, with Fred Salonga, Mario Pangan and Alex Ong, scored a 53 to finish third in the 18-hole tournament that drew the country’s leading pros along with their amateur partners from the sponsors and backers of the tradition pro-am event.

    The wind-swept layout, carved out in the Bataan mountains near the boundary of former US naval base in Subic and built inside the 470 hectares land owned by the Ayala Land Corp. where long-time golf patron ICTSI operates its container business, has been PGT’s able partner the last two years, providing a different kind of challenge to the men of the tour.

    It was in fact voted as the best course in last year’s ICTSI PGT season topped by Miguel Tabuena who won four tournaments to claim the coveted Order of Merit title.

    Meanwhile, Justin Limjap shared the pro-am spotlight when he won the nearest to the line and longest drive honors on Nos. 5 and 15, respectively, while Nico Sevilla took the nearest to the hole award on No. 13
