    Teen pro Miguel Tabuena takes command in Taipei event of Asian Tour

    Sep 13, 2014

    TEEN Filipino pro Miguel Tabuena came up with a birdie-birdie finish for a seven-under-par 65 on Saturday and a one-stroke lead after the third round of the Yeangder Tournament Players Championship in Taipei.

    The 19-year-old shotmaker fired three straight birdies from No. 10 and finished the day at 10-under 206, while Thaworn Wiratchant and Anirban Lahiri were at 9-under.

    “I hit good quality shots on the front nine but didn’t make anything. I went into the back and told myself to do what I’ve been doing and the putts started to fall. I believe in myself so hopefully I will win my maiden title this week,” Tabuena told

    “My coach has been a really big help in my game and I think the hard work has paid off. If my game clicks on the last day then I believe that I can play well and contend for the title.”

    Tony Lascuna, money leader on the Philippine domestic tour, came up with a 72 for a 209 total, while Jay Bayron had a 69 and a 214 aggregate.

    Elmer Salvador fired a 75, and was tied for 30th at 215 with, among others, Angelo Que, who shot a 76.
