I decided to shrug off the Manny Pacquiao-Juan Manuel Marquez post-fight blah, blah, blah.
The judges’ score cards were clear. Our boxing idol won. Period.

The 6th Philippine Airlines (PAL) Interclub Golf Tournament hosted by Davao City at the Rancho Palos Verdes course that ended last Friday was played by outstanding golfers from Manila Southwoods, Del Monte Bukidnon, Negros, Alabang, Rivera, Valley Golf South, Cebu Country, Mactan Island, Manila Southwoods Legends, Bacolod, Eagle Ridge, Manila Golf, Kooka Birdies, Victorias, Tagaytay Highlands, Iloilo, Mt. Malarayat, Valley Golf North and Japan Golf Clubs, and local teams Apo, Davao and Rancho was a whopping success and added another feather to PAL’s cap.
PAL president and CEO Jaime Bautista, Philippine Department of Tourism-Hong Kong representative David Leung, PAL senior assistant vice president for Mindanao Atty.Domingo Duerme, VP for marketing support Felix Cruz, and RPVGCC president Anthony “Taras” Sasin and director Jose Francisco “Nonoy” Llamas gladly did the ceremonial swings in this year’s event appropriately dubbed “She Swings”.
It looks like the PAL Ladies Interclub is on the roll again after 23 years of absence as team managers decided to choose Iloilo Golf and Country Club in Sta.Barbara as next year’s venue. Developments like this are a big boost to women’s amateur golf. That would be lovely!
Keep ‘em flying, PAL!
