Harmie Constantino looks to add the junior match play title to her haul this year. 

HARMIE Constantino eyes another match play title as she heads the field in the 2018 Philippine Junior Amateur Match Play Golf Championship beginning on Monday at Riviera Golf and Country Club’s Langer course in Silang, Cavite.

Constantino bested Mikha Fortuna to claim the Philippine Amateur Open match play title last month at Orchard, and now the national team mainstay looks to clinch the title in the event for players 17 years old and below.

Registration ends on Friday, according to the organizing National Golf Association of the Philippines.

The top 32 in the boys’ side and top 16 in the girls section after two rounds of stroke play will advance to the knockout phase of the annual event sponsored by the MVP Sports Foundation and held as part of the PLDT Group National Amateur Golf Tour.

Tomi Arejola, Laurea Duque, Sofia Legaspi, Arnie Tanguines, Mariel Tee and Koreans Jang Yun Ji and Kim Seo Young are seeing action.

Paolo Wong and Pierre Ticzon head the cast in the boys’ side along with Matthew Abalos, Kristoffer Arevalo, Leandro Bagtas, Paolo Barro and Vince Floro.

Koreans Jung Jaehyun, Lee Sang Min, Rho Hyun Ho and Kim Tae Soo are also in the hunt along with locals Joaquin Gomez, Guilbert Purcia, Sean Ramos and Masaichi Otake.
