    Tabuena wins as Bayron collapses yet again

    Jun 8, 2012
    Teen star Miguel Tabuena has now won two of the five legs of the local golf tour.

    Teenage star Miguel Tabuena outduelled veteran Jay Bayron, firing a 70 to win the Eastridge Classic by three strokes on Friday in Binangonan, Rizal.

    It was the second title in five legs for the 17-year-old Tabuena, who won the Philippine Golf Tour’s opening leg at Splendido in Taal.

    Co-leader after the second round, Tabuena finished at eight-under 208 in the 54-hole tournament to bag the P200,000 top prize.

    The two-under round was enough to create a gap between him and  overnight co-leader Jay Bayron who again suffered a woeful collapse after playing well in the first two days.

    Hoping to make amends after losing a five-stroke lead in the final round at Eagle Ridge two weeks ago, Bayron hobbled with a 38 after nine holes and limped home with a 73, joining Sherwood Hills winner Elmer Salvador, Eagle Ridge champion Tony Lascuna and three-time Asian Tour winner Angelo Que in second place at 211.

    Salvador had a closing 68, while Lascuna and Que both scored 69. They each pocketed P68,666.

    John Hay leg winner Marvin Dumandan shot a 71 and finished alone in sixth at 214, while Charles Hong fired a 69 and tied last year’s champion Juvic Pagunsan, who matched par 72, for seventh place at 215.

    First round co-leader Mars Pucay carded a 74 and ended up tied for ninth with Orlan Sumcad (71), Michael Bibat (72) and Rufino Bayron (73) at 216.
