TARLAC, Philippines — The ICTSI Luisita Ladies International 2024 blasts off today in an electrifying showdown of precision and putting skills among stalwarts from the LPGA of Taiwan (TLPGA), formidable contenders from the Thai LPGA, and homegrown talents at the Luisita Golf and Country Club here.

Strategic decision-making will play a pivotal role in the $100,000 championship at the demanding 6,362-yard Robert Trent Jones Sr.-designed course renowned for its risk-and-reward, well-kept layout.

For PK Kongkraphan, this tournament marks a chance to fulfill unfinished business after falling short in last year’s Anvaya Cove Ladies International, also a TLPGA-Ladies Philippine Golf Tour co-sanctioned event in Morong, Bataan.

Meanwhile, Princess Superal is determined to bounce back from a final-round slip at Caliraya Springs, eager to witness the fruits of her labor in refining her driving technique as she aims to elevate her performance in time for the resumption of her campaign on the Japan Step Up Tour.

Ahead of this event, sponsored by ICTSI and organized by Pilipinas Golf Tournaments, Inc., Superal’s preparations have been nothing short of rigorous.

The former US Girls’ Junior titlist hopes to capitalize on her local knowledge of the layout as she faces a tough first-round draw, pitting skills with Yu-Ju Chen of Taiwan and Thai Chonlada Chayanun at 8 a.m. on No. 1.

“We’re more familiar with Luisita, so we’ll see how it goes,” said Superal.
