MANILA, Philippines - Aguinaldo 2 gave no breathing room to its overmatched rivals, rampaging to a 43-point win in Division I of the recent ICTSI Jungolf Interclub Golf Championships at the Splendido Taal Golf and Country Club in Nasugbu, Batangas.
Rupert Zaragosa, Kristoffer Arevalo, Raymart Tolentino and Nikolo Gatmaytan posted scores of 159, 168 and 161, respectively, for a three-day aggregate of 488 that was too hot to handle for Valley 1 which finished way behind at 445 in the centerpiece division.
