Pinay aces face uphill battle


Five of the country’s top pros brace for three days of grueling battle of shotmaking against the best of Taiwan LPGA Tour and a host of aces from Thailand, Japan, Korea, Malaysia and Singapore in the Party Golfer Ladies Open firing off 3 October at the National Golf Country Club in Miaoli County in Taiwan.

With the top six players in the current Taiwan LPGA Tour ranking and a slew of Thai aces bannering the elite international cast, Mia Piccio, Princess Superal, Cyna Rodriguez, Daniella Uy and Marvin Monsalve will have their work cut out for them in the $100,000 event co-sanctioned by the TLPGA and the Ladies Philippine Golf Tour.

“It’s going to be tough but we’ll do our very best,” said Superal, the current Order of Merit leader on the LPGT.

Piccio is actually taking time out from her Symetra Tour campaign to join Superal and former three-time LPGT OOM winner Rodriguez in the 54-hole tournament that marks the first time that the local circuit will be co-staging a tournament abroad as part of Pilipinas Golf Tournaments, Inc.’s effort to advance the growth of local ladies pro golf.
