MANILA, Philippines — All but one of six champs are set to defend their titles in their respective age-group categories as the ICTSI JPGT Luzon Series 2 resumes tomorrow at the posh Pradera Verde Golf and Country Club in Lubao, Pampanga.

A pair of seasoned international competitors will join the title chase in the premier 15-18 division, promising an engaging and competitive tournament.

Meanwhile, the organizing Pilipinas Golf Tournaments, Inc. is closely monitoring the weather conditions due to Typhoon Aghon, saying the decision regarding whether to proceed with or postpone the JPGT Pradera Verde tournament will be made by 11 a.m. today based on the morning weather report from PAGASA.

Maurysse Abalos and Ryuji Suzuki, who secured victories in contrasting styles in the 8-10 class during the circuit’s kickoff leg at Splendido Taal two weeks ago, are back in pursuit of consecutive championships. Abalos will face new challengers Georgina Handog, Mavis Espedido and Amiya Tablac, while Lily Agamata aims to improve on her fourth-place finish from the first leg.

Suzuki, on the other hand, anticipates tougher competition from Vince Tablac, Theodore Rios, Monte Andaman and Zoji Edoc while Jose Luis Espinosa and Michael Ray Hortel II will try to bounce back from close defeats at Splendido in the 36-hole competition.
