MANILA, Philippines - Miggy Yee tamed the short Capitol Hills course with a two-under-par 62 equivalent to 60 points in the Molave system as La Salle Greenhills pulled away by 35 points at resumption of the juniors division action in the ICTSI-JGFP Inter-school golf tournament.

Coming off a 53-point performance at the Aguinaldo layout, Yee was even better at Capitol Hills and got all the support from teammates JP de Claro (49) and Luigi Guerrero (48) to give the Greenies a 153 for the round and a 36-hole aggregate of 304. AR Ramos (47) and Inigo Raymundo (46) didn’t count.

Nicholas Dy-Buncio tried to keep it close for Xavier but his team was still outscored by five and found themselves facing a huge deficit in the tourney backed chiefly by the International Container Terminal Services, Inc. and also sponsored by the Pancake House Group, Sizzlin’ Pepper, Pancake House, Golf Depot and Philippines Airlines.

Missing the first round action, Dy-Buncio fired a 51 in his debut while teammates Justin Uy and Miguel Tan finished with a 49 and 48, respectively.

Ateneo 1 (139) and La Salle Zobel (120) were tied for third at 261, LSGH3 fourth at 247, Brent 218 following an 53-point game by Carlo Quimson, the Raymart Tolentino-powered Marist at 200, Xavier2 at 195, Ateneo 2 at 182 and LSGH4 at 141.

Yee wrested the upper hand from Tolentino in the individual race with a 109 total against the 108 of the latter. LSGH bets dominated the standings as de Claro was at 98, Guerrero at 97 and Ramos at 95.
