A 13-handicapper, Pedernal had a strong opening with perfect game in Hole No. 8 to shoot a 3-over par 39 in the front nine.

Despite a snail-paced back nine, Pedernal has done enough to lead the monthly tournament with a 66 beating five-handicapper, William Retardo and 11-handicapper Vic Romana who were tied at 69.

Retardo capped the front nine with a 66 and slowed down to a 38 in the back for the second place while Roman had a good start as well finishing the front nine with only a 3-over for third.

Larry Pascual took the fourth place with a 41 in the front nine and 42 in the back for a 71 while Dan Ganacias settled for the fifth place with a 42 in the front and improved to 40 in the b back to finish with a 72.

Joseph Fernandez shared the victory with Pedernal securing the B Division title with a 73. He shot 44 in the front and 48 in the back.

Pascual also shot closest to the pin in Hole Nos. 8 and 16 and Paul Bea in Hole Nos. 6 and 12.
