The big story of the tournament, however, took place late Saturday afternoon when Alejandro ‘Jun’ Dayot III nailed an ace on hole No. 15, which features an island green and is deemed as the club’s signature hole.

With most players struggling on the very dry conditions, Alberto and Cue combined for rounds of 75 and 73 points for a total of 148 in the four-day, 36-hole event that used the Modified Stableford Scoring System.  Players were only allowed to use three-fourths of their current handicap.

The Island Tee is the annual member-guest tournament of the club that is located inside the Mactan Benito Ebuen Air Base.

Dayot used a Mizuno 4-iron and a Titleist ProV1 ball for the hole-in-one scored from 170 yards.  The feat was witnessed by Noel Abad and Andrew Ahn.
