Philippine Ladies Open gets going today
(The Philippine Star) - February 18, 2020 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines — Young Rianne Malixi shoots for the prized title that would further firm up her standing in the ranks, Abby Arevalo seeks a crowning glory to a checkered amateur career while Nicole Abelar and Eagle Ace Superal are out to spoil the projected duel of aces who disputed the national crown the last time out.

With the likes of Laurea Duque, Mariel Tee, Sophia Blanco, Junia Gabasa, Arine Taguines, Sam Dizon, Rhea Langamin and Mafy Singson also brimming with confidence, expect a slambang start to the Philippine Ladies Open today at the Manila Golf Club in Forbes Park.

A number of foreign bets are also coming into the championship, organized by the Women’s Golf Association of the Philippines, in top form, among them Airi Mitsuhashi, Aussie Angela Enqi and Fil-Guamanian Kristin Oberiano, ensuring keen competition in the 54-hole tournament, a World Amateur Golf Ranking event sponsored by San Miguel Corp., Diamond Motors, Sunsports and Eva Air.

But focus will be on the 12-year-old Malixi and Arevalo, 20, with the former all primed up for another championship run after snaring the National Stroke Play title at Riviera last month.
