Canlubang— Rupert Zaragosa went on a birdie-binge at the back to douse cold water on a hot-starting Brian Kim and complete a back-to-back title romp in the WExpress-DHL RVF Cup Amateur Golf Championship, winning by three on a closing 69 at Cangolf’s North course here yesterday.
GEN. TRIAS, Cavite – Pro-bound Jobim Carlos took the one that mattered most in amateur play – the Philippine Amateur Stroke Play Championship – as he outgunned Rupert Zaragosa in a nerve-wracking finish to win by three strokes on a closing 72 at Eagle Ridge’s Aoki course here yesterday.
Carlos cashed in on a crucial two-shot swing on No. 15, birdying the par-5 hole and watching Zaragosa three-putt for bogey to regain a two-shot lead. He then came through with a par-par-birdie finish to complete a three-stroke victory on a 289 aggregate in a fitting valedictory to his amateur career.
