BAGUIO CITY — Januarius Private Equity-1 heads to the final round with a two-point lead over Manila Southwoods-1, setting up an exciting finale for the Fil-Championship title of the 73rd Januarius Fil Am Golf Invitational.

Terence Macatangay eagled the 16th to finish with 36 points at the Camp John Hay Golf Club Saturday. Together with the 35 of Jet Mathay, 32 of Ray Sangil and 30 of Ayon Sanchez, Januarius scored 133 and 383 total.

National team mainstay Aidric Chan played superb in the par 69 layout with 37 points. Shinichi Suzuki, Ryan Monsalve and Lanz Uy supported with 36, 33 and 32 respectively. Paolo Wong’s 29 did not count.

“Anything is still possible in the final round,” says Southwoods captain Thirdy Escano of his wards’ chances.

Time Cargo Logistics-2 showed nerves of steel in the last few holes to successfully defended its crown in Am-A, escaping with a two-point win against Forest Hills-2 in one of the most exciting matches in Fil-Am history.

Time Cargo scored 256 points at Camp John Hay and built a huge lead of 32. However, the troop slowed down considerably at Baguio Country Club and collected only 89 and 86 in the final 36 holes for a 431 total.

Forest Hills, meanwhile, led a furious comeback, chopping off once an invincible advantage to 17 after the third round and further down to 7 with nine holes left in the finale.

But the Antipolo-based members sputtered in the finish and produced 101 for 429.

“It was a cardiac ending. Forest Hills gave us a good scare. I’m glad we came out with the win,” said Time Cargo Logistics owner Ruel Cabral, who made a crucial four-putt in the closing hole that gave his team the win.

Uraguns-1 (125-453) was triumphant in Fil-A, upending X1R-Ecoverde (113439) and CheLus-1 (118-435).
