“I fought to the front, mostly on my two-of-a-kind shots and, unlike yesterday (Wednesday), my putt wasn’t left out,” said Avaricio, who now has a two-day total of 139 on a burning 64. Wednesday.
Ikeda has a total of 143 and 18 holes left to change the direction of the P750,000 tournament.
Avarico hiccupped through three bogies in the first seven holes as Ikeda fought from seven down to get a shot in the lead. Ikeda, however, fails to keep up his pace, and counterattacks with birdies at Avaricio 12 and 15, cushing the bogies in two of his last three holes.
“I hope tomorrow my driving will be a bit more stable and put up,” said Ikeda, who has been battling a wrist injury that has hampered his promotion in the last few tournaments.
