Minoza Blows It on 11th


Frankie Minoza blew what could have been a sparkling round when he made a quadruple bogey on the par 4 11th yesterday in a bizarre turn that dropped him to a tie for 22nd place after two rounds of the $2.5 million Hong Kong Open.

Minoza, who was just one stroke off the leaders at the start of the day and sharing third place, was in the thick of the fight and moved to seven-under after eight holes of the second round at Fanling Golf Club.

But on the 11th, he hit the greenside bunker on his approach shot from 150 yards. He chunked his first blast and the ball stayed in the sand trap. His fourth shot was short of the green. He pitched from there but had another poor shot and two-putted for his 8.

Though it dropped him down the leaderboard, Minoza accepted his fate with calmness.

"Maganda ang laro ko except for that one," Frankie told HK-based journalist Dodo Catacutan Jr. who was covering the event for the Hong Kong Standard.

"Hindi ako masyadong disappointed, may two rounds pa para makabawi," said Minoza whose last victory was the Philippine Open three years ago at Wack Wack.

Minoza settled for a two-over par 72 and totalled 137, three-under for the tournament and five shots behind four co-leaders.

Angelo Que has emerged as the top Filipino contender after firing his second straight two-under-par 68.

Que, the 30-year-old reigning Philippine Open champion, gunned down three birdies against a lone bogey to duplicate his first round and climbed from 25th spot to a share of 15th with a 36-hole total of 136.
