ILOILO MANILA, Philippines – Alexie Isabella Gabi and Inno Miguel Flores overcame early struggles and emerged victorious in the 13-15 category of the ICTSI JPGT Iloilo Visayas Series here yesterday.

Both players showcased resilience at the demanding par-70 Iloilo Golf Club course to secure impressive victories. Gabi carded a 91 while Flores shot a 76 for identical eight-stroke romps.

Despite a shaky front nine, Gabi maintained her composure and capitalized on Tiffany Bernardino’s mistakes to clinch the title in the girls’ division with a total score of 253 over 54 holes.

Bernardino, struggling in wet conditions, ended with an 83 for a 261, while Rane Chiu placed third with an 85 for a 269.

“My first nine holes were tough, but I managed to catch up on the back nine,” said Gabi, a student at Quantum Academy.

“I just told myself to focus on my game instead of getting annoyed and distracted,” added Gabi, who will also compete in the two upcoming Bacolod tournaments over the next two weeks.
