Princess Superal to start with Gretchen Villacencio at LPGT Luisita
Princess Superal looks to add to titles won at Highlands and Riviera.

PRINCESS Superal has been drawn to start with Gretchen Villacencio and amateur golfer Samantha Dizon in the ICTSI Luisita Ladies Championship on Wednesday at the Luisita Golf and Country Club in Tarlac.

“I’m confident but I expect it to be a lot tougher this time,” said Superal, who swept the last two legs of the Ladies Philippine Golf Tour in Tagaytay and Riviera in emphatic fashions, including a record-setting 16-stroke romp at Highlands.

Eagle Ridge leg winner Chihiro Ikeda launches her drive for a second LPGT crown in the company of Marvi Monsalve and amateur Mikha Fortuna.

Focus will also be on Cyna Rodriguez, who thrice topped the Order of Merit, as she plays with amateur golfer Sofia Chabon and former leg champion Saruttaya Ngam-usawan of Thailand.

The other Thais joining the title hunt in the P1.5 million event organized by Pilipina Golf Tournaments, Inc. are Supakchaya Pattaranakrueang, Thanuttra Boonraksasat, Sarinee Thitiratanakorn, Numa Gulyanamitta, Ananya Vitayakonkomol and Jaruporn P Na Ayuttaya.
