The ICTSI Pradera Verde Ladies Classic gets under way today (Tuesday, Aug. 29) with three of the country’s top guns bracing for a shootout and a slew of others raring to spoil their bid at the Pradera Verde Golf and Country Club in Lubao, Pampanga.
Symetra Tour campaigners Princess Superal and Cyna Rodriguez launch their respective title drive in separate flights while Pauline del Rosario drew former leg winner Chihiro Ikeda and top amateur Sofia Chabon in what promises to be a fiery start at the long but flat par-72 layout.
Superal and Rodriguez are on a break from the US circuit and the two winningest LPGT players have been installed as the early favorites in the seventh leg of the country’s premier ladies circuit sponsored by ICTSI.
But Del Rosario looms as the player to foil the anticipated Superal-Rodriguez face-off with the former amateur hotshot coming off two victories and a runner-up finishes in the last three legs of the eight-stage tour organized by Pilipinas Golf Tournaments, Inc.
“If Ces or Cyna are the favorites, it’s fine with me. It actually takes the pressure off me. But I’ll be there to take care of what I need to do to win, too,” said Del Rosario.
Others joining the chase for the top P150,000 purse in the event, backed by Custom Clubmakers, BDO, Meralco, Sharp, KZG, PLDT, Champion, Summit Mineral Water and K&G Golf, are Majorie Pulumbarit, Apple Fudolin, Sylvia Tores, Jan Punzalan, Gretchen Villacencio, Lucy Landicho and Sheryl Villasencio.
