Angelo Que narrowly misses title in Japan Golf Tour, bags P3.6 million prize for second place
Angelo Que comes up with rounds of 70-68-68-64 at Vintage Golf Club.

ANGELO Que came up with his best finish in the Japan Golf Tour, taking second after being edged by Toshinori Muto in a playoff for the title in the Handa Global Cup on Sunday.

The Filipino shotmaker matched the day’s best 64, a bogey-free seven-under par round at Vintage Golf Cub in Hokuto, Yamanashi.

He sank three birdies in the final five holes to finish at 14-under 270 and force the playoff.

Muto wound up with the title with birdie on the playoff as Que settled for par. Still, it was a feat that drew praise from the Asian Tour, where Que is a three-time winner.


The local bet Muto bagged ¥20,000,000 (about P7.34 million) from the ¥100,000,000 event, while Que still got a huge piece of the pot with about P3.6 million for second prize.

It was a huge finish for Que, who had earlier rounds of 70-68-68.
