Juvic Pagunsan hopes to snap a two-tournament slump while Angelo Que tries to rebound from a missed cut abroad as they resume their chase for a record fourth crown in The Country Club Invitational which unwraps tomorrow in Sta. Rosa, Laguna.
The smooth-swinging Pagunsan lost momentum after dominating the PGT (Philippine Golf Tour) Asia Riviera leg last month, missing the cut in the Solaire Philippine Open the following week and ending up tied at 22nd in the ICTSI Luisita Championship last weekend.
The power-hitting Que, on the other hand, finished joint third in the Phl Open but failed to advance in the Token Homemate Cup of the Japan PGA Tour last Friday, his abbreviated stint giving him more time to figure out his game in time for the TCC Invitational also known as the Don Pocholo Razon Memorial Cup.
Pagunsan and Que share the most number of titles at three apiece in what has long been regarded as one of the country’s major championships for its prize fund (P5 million) and stellar cast (featuring the top 30 of the 2018 PGT Order of Merit ranking) with the demanding Tom Weiskoph-designed layout providing a fitting challenge for the best of the best.
