The Manila Southwoods and ICTSI, two of the biggest entities involved in golf in the country, will present the ninth edition of the Philippine Sportswriters Association Cup at the well-manicured Legends course in Carmona on Friday.
This will be the first staging of the event since 2019, with Southwoods, which runs the most dominant amateur program of the last decade, and ICTSI, which bankrolls the country’s men’s and ladies’ pro tours, all too willing to lend their support.
“It will be a day of fun, camaraderie and friendly competition among golfing members of the PSA and our friends,” said Nelson Beltran, the Philippine Star sports editor and PSA president.
The 18-hole event will be the first under Beltran’s watch, with the last, also hosted by Southwoods in 2019, led by Dodo Catacutan of Spin.ph.
“This gives us a chance to renew friendships with those we cover,” Beltran said.
