Go among favorites in ICTSI Philippine Masters
Lloyd Go

MANILA, Philippines — Buoyed by a strong joint runner-up finish in Japan, Lloyd Go is gearing up for a shot at a second Philippine Golf Tour victory as he joins the competitive field in the ICTSI Villamor Philippine Masters starting Tuesday at the Villamor Golf Club in Pasay.

Go, who nailed his first PGT win at Palos Verdes last March with a commanding four-stroke victory, has since made impressive strides on the international stage. His notable performance in the ABEMA Tour’s I Golf Shaper Challenge in Fukuoka last April, where he tied for second place, and tied for 32nd in Japan Golf Tour’s For The Players By The Players tournament last week, highlight his peak form and readiness to compete.

The P2 million Philippine Masters is the fourth leg of this year’s 10-stage circuit, organized by Pilipinas Golf Tournaments, Inc.

Jhonnel Ababa, the reigning PGT Order of Merit champion, also enters the event with confidence after a dramatic victory over Guido van der Valk and Joenard Rates last year. Ababa’s triumph in the opening leg of this year’s Tour in Apo, Davao, sets him up as a formidable opponent.
