Cyna ends layoff, joins tour

Cyna Rodriguez is coming out of a two-year layoff to compete in the ICTSI Negros Occidental Classic presented by MORE Power unfolding 15 March at the Marapara Golf and Country Club course in Negros Occidental.

The former LPGA Tour campaigner’s presence in the 54-hole event is expected to toughen up the field.

Rodriguez dominated the start of the LPGT in 2013, racking up six victories and sweeping the Order of Merit titles in the first three years.

The former Junior World champion and many-time member of the national team also gained an LPGA Tour card in 2015 and campaigned for two years before opting to resume her pro career at home.
Injuries, however, stymied her return to LPGT, leading to mediocre finishes. She last competed in November 2020.

When the offer to work for Anvaya Cove came about in late 2021, she readily accepted it.

After a more than a year stint as golf director, she said: “I learned a lot, it’s the first golf course that I handled. As a well-traveled golfer, I was able to get my input seeing other golf courses from different countries.”

But throwing her hat into the ring has been ingrained in her character and Anvaya Cove’s recent hosting of a top-notch championship must’ve fueled her desire to compete again.

“This coming March, I will be playing on the tour, so I’m excited to go back and play with the same people and hopefully see fresh faces,” Rodriguez said.

She, however, will stay as Anvaya Cove golf director while at the same focusing on her third Tour return and a plausible crack for another LPGT glory.
