    Clyde Mondilla rules The Players Championship to end PGT season on top of money list

    Sep 30, 2017

    CLYDE Mondilla topped The Players Championship to top the Philippine Golf Tour money list.

    Mondilla fired a closing five-under 67 for a winning 17-under 271 at Summit Point Golf Club on Friday in Lipa, two weeks after topping the ICTSI Riviera Classic of the PGT Asia Tour.

    The 24-year-old Mondilla bagged P550,000 and ended the PGT season with winnings of P3,156,409.

    “I’m so happy, this is a sweet victory and I couldn’t ask for more,” said Mondilla, who also won back-to-back at Manila Southwoods and Villamor last May to complete a four-leg romp in the ninth season of the country’s premier circuit sponsored by ICTSI.

    Jerson Balasabas fired a tournament-best eight-under 64 for second place at 274 worth P370,000.

    “I was so focused in all four days. When Jerson (Balasabas) made a charge, I didn’t panic since I knew I can handle the situation,” added Mondilla, who birdied the three par-5s and eagled the last on No. 9.

    Jay Bayron, winner at Summit Point in 2015, shot a 69 and wound up third at 276 for P215,000.

    Orlan Sumcad rallied with a 65 and snatched fourth place at 277 worth P165,000 while Keanu Jahns also fought back with a 67 to tie Dutchman Guido Van der Valk, who carded a 70, at sixth at 278. Each got P122,500.
