Juvic Pagunsan slipped to a share of sixth place after shooting a one-over-par 71 in the second round of the Mitsui Sumitomo VISA Taiheyo Masters 2022 in Japan Friday.

Kennedy fired a 66 while Kim shot a 70.

Ikegami and Ikemura each had a 68, Kinoshita posted a 69 and Hoshino sizzled for a 65.

Alone on top on 8-under 132 was Japanese Hiroshi Iwata who carded a second-straight 66.

Three Japanese were tied for second on 134 — Ryo Katsumata, Ryo Ishikawa and Taiga Semikawa.

The 62-year-old Filipino legend completed 54 holes on 7-under 209, 15 shots behind Prayad Marskaeng who closed with a 65.

Minoza, who will fly home to compete in the ICTSI Match Play Championship next week, opened with a birdie and added two more on 5 and 6.

After eight straight pars, Minoza closed with a bogey.

Edison Tabalin, who won the boys’ 15-18 title in the recent Singha Thailand Junior World Championship, carried the bag for the Filipino legend.
