MANILA, Philippines — Angelo Que aims to capitalize on recent strong performances on the Asian Development Tour as he tries to break a winless streak on the Philippine Golf Tour while adding significant depth to a formidable field in the ICTSI Villamor Philippine Masters.

The P2 million championship tees off tomorrow at the Villamor Golf Club with Que in high spirits after posting a solo 12th place finish in the All Thailand Partnership Trophy and a tied for ninth effort in the Phuket Open over the past three weeks. He is primed to challenge for this week’s championship against the country’s top players and a crop of emerging stars.

The three-time Asian Tour winner narrowly missed victory by three strokes to Clyde Mondilla in the recent PGT leg at Caliraya Springs. However, his runner-up finish, coupled with impressive results in Thailand, underscores Que’s potential to contend for the crown in the 72-hole championship sponsored by ICTSI.

“Momentum-wise, I’ve been playing solid since the start of the season. I’ve been making cuts but haven’t been finishing that strong yet on the weekends,” said Que during yesterday’s pro-am tournament. “However, the momentum is there, and as long as I keep it up, maybe, finally, I can do something great.”

However, Que, who last won in the 2019 PGT Asia event at Manila Southwoods, will face a tough lineup, including defending champion Jhonnel Ababa, who won the season opener in Davao, and Lloyd Go, who has honed his skills in Japan following a breakthrough win at Palos Verdes. Other top contenders ainclude Mondilla, Guido van der Valk, Tony Lascuña, Rupert Zaragosa, Reymon Jaraula, Michael Bibat, Zanieboy Gialon, former Masters tilist Jerson Balasabas, Jay Bayron, Marvin Dumandan, Keanu Jahns and Jobim Carlos.
