Miguel Tabuena of the Philippines lost to local bet Danny Ochoa in a sudden-death playoff for the boys 13-14 years crown of the San Diego Junior Masters at the Carlton Oaks course on Tuesday (Wednesday Manila time) here.
After scoring a 73 to finish tied with first round co-leader Ochoa at 141, Tabuena dumped his approach on the second playoff into the water that dashed his bid for a second age-group title here.
Edward Reyes struggled with a 75 in the boys championship division and settled for a share of third place.
Reyes’ 146 total for two days left him a stroke short of joining the playoff that featured Allan Jun of California and Brent White of Australia who shot 74 and 75, respectively, to end up at 145.
Maan Legaspi also wound up third in the girls championship when she carded a 77-155 while Debbie de Villa (80-157) ended fourth in this tune-up tourney for Philippine kids playing in next week’s Callaway Junior World meet.
In the long-driving contest for the lower divisions, Miggy Yee won his second straight crown in the boys 11-12 years. RP bets Daniella Uy and Pauline del Rosario also topped their respective age-groups.
