Bisera sets sight on ICTSI Mimosa Plus


‘I plan to play in Taiwan in November so I hope to win again and build more confidence.’

Florence Bisera remains resolute in pursuit of another golfing honor, going for a sweep of the last two legs of the Ladies Philippine Golf Tour in the ICTSI Mimosa Plus Championship reeling off Tuesday, 26 September at Clark Freeport Zone in Pampanga.

The rising star from the golfing clan in Davao scored a wire-to-wire triumph in South Pacific, beating Mikha Fortuna by three and joining the elite circle of winners in the circuit put up by ICTSI.

“I plan to play in Taiwan in November so I hope to win again and build more confidence,” said Bisera, referring to the Party Golfers Ladies Open of the LPGA of Taiwan, which the LPGT used to co-sanction in pre-pandemic times.

But the P1-million Mimosa Plus Championship will be doubly challenging for the 21-year-old Bisera, who drew strength from her father-caddie Reynaldo to essay her South Pacific romp, the latter being the club’s caddie master.

But the third-year Civil Engineering student at Mapua U stays as upbeat as ever, confident that her sheer power and innate skills will carry her past practically the same field she had bested at home.

But Fortuna and the rest of the 20-player cast are also ready and keen on stopping Bisera while giving their respective title bids a shot in the arm in the 54-hole championship serving as the final leg of this year’s 10-stage LPGT organized by Pilipinas Golf Tournaments Inc. and backed by PGTI official apparel Kampfortis Golf.

Fortuna, for one, is out for redemption after a final round meltdown at South Pacific while Daniella Uy, who rallied to snare runner-up honors the last time out, and Harmie Constantino both shoot for a third leg victory in an attempt to emerge the winningest player in the season about to end.

But out to spring a surprise are Korean Seoyun Kim, Pamela Mariano, Sarah Ababa, Gretchen Villacencio, Marvi Monsalve, Apple Fudolin and young guns Rev Alcantara, Monica Mandario, Annika Cedo and Velinda Castil.
