Juvic eyes PH Open

Juvic Pagunsan will have all the motivation, not to mention momentum, when he sets out for the elusive Solaire Philippine Open crown against a stellar international field starting tomorrow at The Country Club in Laguna.

By dominating the ICTSI Riviera Challenge in his very first Philippine Golf Tour Asia foray last Saturday, Pagunsan will be bringing in some cloak of invincibility to the $500,000 event whose composition remains as talent-laden as ever despite the withdrawal of last year’s champion Miguel Tabuena.

“This (win) is a big boost heading to the Phl Open,” said the soft-spoken Pagunsan after beating fellow Japan PGA Tour campaigner and former Phl Open champ Angelo Que by seven at Riviera.
