Jay Bayron, Miguel Tabuena wind up four strokes short of playoff in Asian Tour's Manila Masters
Former ADT top earner Jay Bayron goes bogey-free in the final 18 holes at Southwoods.

JAY Bayron hit an eagle in a bogey-free stint, while Miguel Tabuena also had a near-flawless round to wind up in joint 14th in the Asian Tour’s RW Manila Masters on Sunday at Manila Southwoods.

Bayron, former top earner on the Asian Development Tour, eagled No. 15 on the way to a 64 and a 15-under 273 total.

That was matched by Miguel Tabuena, finishing with a bogey-free 67 by closing with a birdie.

It was a solid week for Bayron, with earlier rounds of 71-68-70.

Tabuena also had a fine run highlighted by an opening-round-67 when he hit nine birdies.

Bayron and Tabuena narrowly missed out on a top 10 finish, winding up in joint 14th, just four strokes off the three-man playoff.

Nicholas Fung of Malaysia, Sam Chien of the US and SSP Chawrasia arranged a playoff after winding up tied at 19-under 269.

Fung carded a closing 63, but Chien’s 65 and Chawrasia’s 66 were enough to force extra holes.

Tony Lascuna had a tough 70 featuring six birdies, two bogeys and a double-bogey for a 12-under 276 total.

Jhonnel Ababa fired a closing 74 for a 281 aggregate, while Albin Engino had a 72 for a 285.
