Superal heavy favorite at Sherwood
Like the rest of the field, Princess Superal can’t wait to get going in the Ladies Philippine Golf Tour (LPGT) resumption to put her conditioning and preparations to the test.
“We’re happy for the resumption [of the tour],” said the multititled Superal, who topped one and placed second twice when the circuit held its restart last year and early this season following an eight-month hiatus due to the global health crisis. “It’s been a long time and we really miss [the action].”Despite the long layoff, Superal says she has stayed in top shape and will come into the P750,000 ICTSI Sherwood Ladies Challenge starting on Wednesday in Trece Martirez in Cavite as the top favorite.
The circuit went on a three-month break due to a surge of coronavirus cases in the National Capital Region Plus last March with 2017 LPGT Order of Merit winner Pauline del Rosario, who topped on LPGT bubble tournament last year, opting to embark on a US tour as part of her buildup for the LPGA Q-School in October.
Superal is likewise preparing for the resumption of her campaign in the Step Up Tour in Japan and the LPGT’s four-tournament schedule will surely help her reach competitive form, not to mention bolster her confidence.
After the Sherwood leg, action shifts to Eagle Ridge for the Eagle Ridge Ladies Classic on July 14-16 at the Norman course then back to Riviera on July 28-30 at the Langer course.
