Putting is key: Superal

    153

    PRINCESS Superal is working on her putting ahead of her highly anticipated title rematch with Harmie Constantino as the top two bets prime up for the ICTSI Eagle Ridge Championship beginning Tuesday, March 23, at the Norman course in Gen. Trias, Cavite.

    The 2019 Ladies Philippine Golf Tour Order of Merit champion flubbed a number of putts in the final round while Constantino came through with clutch strokes to post a two-stroke victory in the ICTSI Eagle Ridge Challenge at Aoki last week.

    The title chase will also be a question of length although the field is expected to gain some yardage on the hardened Norman fairways. Accent will also be on club selection given the strong wind conditions at this time of the year.

    That should set the stage for another down-the-wire finish in the 54-hole championship with the likes of Pauline del Rosario, Daniella Uy and Chanelle Avaricio also going into the P750,000 event upbeat of their chances.

    But focus will be on Superal, who dominated the first LPGT bubble tournament at Riviera late last year but fell short in the next two, losing by one to Del Rosario at Langer then falling short against Constantino.

    “I struggled with my putting that’s why I was not able to get back at Harmie in the stretch,” said Superal. “Hopefully, it clicks this week.”
