Resorts World Masters fires off in S’woods » Manila Bulletin Sports



China’s Liang wen-chong returns to familiar winning ground, hoping his run at the Resorts World Manila Masters will come full circle when the richest tournament in the Philippines tees off today.

Liang, the inaugural Resorts World Manila Masters winner, along with three other past champions- Mardan Mamat (2014), Natipong Srithong (2015) and S.S.P. Chawrasia (2016) are all looking forward to rekindle their past love affairs with the Manila Southwoods Golf and Country Club where the US$1 million event will be staged this week.

The Resorts World Manila Masters celebrated worthy winners in Liang, who claimed a thrilling play-off triumph over Thailand’s Prom Meesawat in 2013 and Chawrasia, who celebrated his first victory abroad last year.

In between those two victories, Mardan marched to a commanding six-shot win in 2014 while Natipong defied all odds by winning the 2015 edition shortly after turning professional.

On the home front, Filipino legend Frankie Minoza will spearhead the local challenge alongside 2011 Asian Tour Order of Merit champion Juvic Pagunsan, one-time winner Miguel Tabuena and Antonio Lascuna.

Other sponsors of the Resorts World Manila Masters Presented by Philippine Department of Tourism include Manila Southwoods Golf and Country Club (Host venue), Marriott (Hotel Partner) Konami, Scientific Games, Aristocrat, Levelwear, IGT Asia Pte Ldt, Empire Automation, VYCON RGD LTD, PLDT Enterprise, Ecco Golf and Dalmore.
