MANILA, Philippines - Forest Hills bested its rivals in the concluding Greensome format and nailed its first WGAP (Women’s Golf Association of the Philippines) Cup victory with a two-point romp over Sta. Elena at the Orchard Golf and Country Club in Dasmariñas, Cavite recently.

Clinging to a half-point lead over Camp Aguinaldo after the High Low at Summit Point and Best Ball at Southlinks, Forest Hills saved its best for last and scored three points in Greensome for Classes A and C players for a winning eight-point total in the event organized and conducted by WGAP and presented by Champion Infinity.

Sta. Elena closed out with two points to snatch second place at six points while this year’s WGAP Circuit winner Alabang also posted two points and wound up tied for third with Aguinaldo, which struggled with a lone point, at 5.5.

Tagaytay Highlands fell short of its comeback bid as it settled for two points and ended up last in the five-team field, which features the top teams after the WGAP Circuit, with five points after ruling the annual event for a record four straight last year.

Jane Magada and Corazon Sy combined to power Forest Hills to a 5&4 triumph over Alabang’s Marilyn Reyes and Tess Yap then Nelda Roguel and Evelyn Alcantara nipped Sta. Elena’s Carina Ricamonte and Gia Suarez, 2&1; while Tess Staub and Beatrice Ann Que capped the Antipolo-based squad’s title romp with a 4&3 victory over Aguinaldo’s Mabel Salivio and Hazel Gabud.

Sta. Elena rode on late victories by Therese Dabao and Patricia Kohchet-Chua, who subdued Aguinaldo’s Lizbeth Alcantara and Lally Trinidad, 3&2; and Rio Co and Surlianti Walker, who also posted a 3&2 win over Tagaytay’s Hee Sun Kim and Erlinda Gamut.
