Members Club at Woodcreek in Columbia, South Carolina – From 6, the Filipino contingent in the 2012 Women’s Trans National Golf Association Amateur Championship is now down to 2 as only Princess Superal and Mia Piccio survived their Round of 32 matches in the match play portion of the event.
Princess Superal followed up her 7 and 5 victory in the Round of 64 with 4 and 2 win over South Carolina‘s Collins Bradshaw. She is joined in the Round 16 by ICTSI teammate Mia Piccio who won over Aurora Kan, 2-1. The other 4 Filipina bets were not as lucky as they were eliminated after yesterday’s matches. First to be eliminated in the Round of 32 was Sarah Jane Ababa of Davao as she was simply overwhelmed by Kate Scarpetta, 7 and 6. Cyna Rodriguez and Jayvie Agojo followed Ababa to the sidelines by dropping similar 2 and 1 matches against Regina Plasencia and Tilly Poulsen, respectively. Texas’ Kelsey Vines needed 29 holes to beat Dottie Ardina.
Round of 16 match-ups for the remaining Filipina participants:
- Princess Superal vs. Kelly Shon
