    Que five strokes off the pace in Malaysian Open

    Mar 21, 2013

    ANGELO Que overcame tough playing conditions to fire a two-under 70 and stand five strokes behind pacesetting Kiradech Aphibarnrat of Thailand in the weather-delayed first round of the Maybank Malaysian Open on Thursday.

    Que hit three birdies and suffered one bogey at the Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club, emerging as the best-placed Filipino after 18 holes in the US$2.75 million tournament.

    Tony Lascuna, who topped the money list on the Philippine Golf Tour last season, had a rollercoaster round of 72 featuring five birdies, three bogeys and a double bogey.

    Former Asian No. 1 Juvic Pagunsan had a dismal opening round with one birdie, one bogey and a disastrous 10 on the par-14 No. 16 for a 78.

    Elmer Salvador was even through five holes when play was called off in the afternoon due to bad weather.

    Kiradech had seven birdies and a bogey for a 65, one stroke ahead of Anders Hansen of Denmark, Edoardo Molinari of Italy and Gregory Bourdy of France.
