For years, the Philippine amateur women’s golf team has been bagging honors for our country here and abroad. Three of its top mainstays has qualified in the main draw of he prestigious US Women’s Amateur Open. The PH bets for the tournament are Jayvie Agojo, Cyna Marie Rodriguez and Chihiro Ikeda.
Jayvie Agojo is a graduate of Pepperdine University . She had been one of the top jungolfers of the Philippines leading to her signing with the US NCAA Division I University. Among her victories in her junior golfer days were 2003 Optimist International Junior Championships (16-18), 2002 Optimist International Junior Championships (14-15), 2000, 2001, 2002 and 2003 Temecula International Junior Championships and the 2000 and 2003 San Francisco Junior Championships. She recently helped the Philippine the defend the New Zealand Foursomes Championships at the Russley Golf Club in New Zealand.
Cyna Marie Rodriguez was the 2006 Girls 13-14 Champion in the Callaway Junior World Golf Championships. She plays for the USC Trojans in the US NCAA and help upset No.1 Alabama in the Allstate Sugar Bowl Intercollegiate at the English Turn Golf & Country Club in New Orleans. She is also former Philippine Ladies Open Champion.
Chihiro Ikeda is probably the hottest Filipina amateur golfer this year. She won Philippine Ladies Open, Royal Selangor Ladies Open, topped the stroke play of the PNGA Women’s Amateur and Mid-Amateur Championship, and figured well in Japan Women’s Amateur Golf Championship .
