Ally Gaccion and Kiara Montebon, who figured in a thrilling four-hole playoff last week, headline the cast in the JGFP Pueblo de Oro ranking event in Cagayan de Oro City Saturday.
Gaccion dropped an eight-foot putt to edge Montebon in the fourth extra hole and win the girls’ 15-18 age group division of the JGFP Pueblo de Oro Junior Open.
