MANILA, Philippines — Aiming for a triumphant leap from the amateur to the professional ranks, former Junior World champion Aidric Chan trekked from Cagayan de Oro to Davao to compete in the Philippine Golf Tour Qualifying School unfolding today at the South Pacific Golf and Leisure Estates.

The stakes are high as 107 contenders, including 34 international aspirants, vie for 30 slots in the 72-hole eliminations.

Chan, no stranger to victory with a notable win in the boys’ centerpiece division in the Junior World in San Diego in 2019, the same year he clinched the pro-am championship with Rey Pagunsan at Splendido, is optimistic about his prospects.

However, the former Arizona Wildcat faces stiff competition from a pool of talented players all eyeing coveted berths that lead to spots in this year’s PGT, which starts on March 12-15 at the nearby Apo Golf and Country Club.

This year’s Q-School, organized by Pilipinas Golf Tournaments, Inc., marks the first time it is being held in the south, recognized as a breeding ground for golf talents.
