(Press Release) — Freddie Cataluna shot 3-under par 69 after a shaky start to win the third leg of the Filtaga 2020 tour by four strokes at the LaoLao East Course during the weekend.

He bogeyed the first hole and doubled the second. But the former club champion immediately bounced back, scoring birdies at holes # 3, 5, 12 and 14.

Cataluna also registered the “shot of the day,” hitting a fairway bunker second shot from 230 yards that landed on the Par 5 hole # 14 green. He failed to eagle the hole.

With the victory, Cataluna joins early qualifiers Eli Buenaventura and Ronnie Santos at the club championship podium. Buenaventura shot 1-over par 73 while Santos came home with 2-over par 74 to finish second and third respectively.

In the Par 3 contest, Ruben Avendano was the winningest, hauling holes # 5 and 7. Buenaventura took hole # 3 while Cataluna won hole # 15
