Pagunsan bags P460K

YOSHI IWAMOTO/AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE Juvic Pagunsan winds up joint 31st place and brings home P460,000 from the Dunlop Phoenix Tournament in Miyazaki, Japan.

Veteran Juvic Pagunsan lost his grip in Sunday’s final round but still managed to snag shared 31st place at the close of the Dunlop Phoenix Tournament at the Phoenix Country Club in Miyazaki.

Pagunsan shot five-over-par 76 to slide from T5 the previous round, totaling 284 for 1,243,333 yen or roughly P460,600.

The 45-year-old double-bogeyed the Par-4 15th, the same hole he birdied during Thursday’s first round, on top of bogeys on the third, 10th, 12th, 14 and 17. He scored birdies on Nos. 6 and 7.

Justin delos Santos fired a 72 for 286 which was good for joint 41st and 860,000 yen (P318,000). Incidentally, he also double-bogeyed the 15th.

Amateur standout Yuta Sugiura captured the title with a 12-under 272 total, three shots over his closest pursuers.

Sugiura, a 22-year-old amateur student from Nihon University, didn’t win cash prize which was instead halved by joint second-placers Taiga Semikawa and Keita Nakajima.

Semikawa who sizzled with a 66, and Nakajima, who fired a 69, finished at 275 to cash in 30 million yen each.

Takahiro Hataji, who signed for a 66, shared fourth place with fellow Japanese Yusako Miyazako (68) and Australian Brad Kennedy (72). They each ran away with 10.4 million yen.
