Tambalque tops JPGT Pradera

Patrick Tambalque kept his stellar play in 18-hole tournaments going, repelling Tristan Padilla to rule Round 5 of the ICTSI Junior PGT Series for boys’ 13-14 with 54 Molave points at Pradera Verde in Lubao, Pampanga Sunday.

In a virtual repeat of his feat at Splendido Taal last week, Tambalque gunned down three birdies against the same number of bogeys as he posted a gross 72 at the well-kept Pradera Verde Golf and Country Club.

He edged Padilla by one point for his third victory in 18-hole format, including his romp at Mount Malarayat last June.

Padilla turned in 53 points after a 73 for second while erstwhile Order of Merit leader Alexander Crisostomo struggled with a 76 worth 50 points for third. Rafael Leonio and Bien Fajardo pooled 48 and 46 points from grosses of 78 and 80 as they placed fourth and fifth, respectively.

Tambalque’s back-to-back wins also netted him 30 points in overall points total which combines the points garnered from 18-hole tournaments and the overall DCP (drive, chip and putt) format as he ended up on top after the grueling course-hopping series organized by Pilipinas Golf Tournaments Inc.

Meanwhile, Santino Pineda turned back a late-charging Zachary Villaroman as he topped Round 4 of the boys’ 15-18 play with 56 Molave points on a gross two-under 70 at the well-kept layout.

In a follow-up to his victory at Splendido Taal last week, Pineda rode on a big backside charge to secure the victory, birdying Nos. 12 and 14 to recover from a frontside 37 on his way to a gross 71.

Villaroman actually matched Pineda’s gross one-under card on a birdie-birdie windup but fell short by one under the Molave scoring system as he ended up with 55 points and settled for another runner-up finish in the series put up by ICTSI.
