The coveted crown of the 28th Mango Tee, done at the prestigious Alabang Country Club located in the fancy and famous Ayala Alabang Village, was won by the hard-hitting duo of Pilipinas Shell, Bobby Kanapi and Dennis Javier. With 85 points leading the way, Kanapi and Javier went for a comfortable lead against their other competitors.
The duo showed great form and execution, most particularly in their final round. Starting out with a 76, Kanapi and Javier had increased their lead by nine points, which eventually proved to be a disastrous blow against King Stehmeier and JB Garcia, a team which even got the lowest gross title in the said tournament.
Stehmeier and Garcia’s efforts won’t go down in vain, though, with their efforts stopping ex-pro Raymund Sangil and Juan Ibazeta’s overall score of 129 (after a 67 and 62). Garcia and Stehmeier’s aggregate score was 130 (after 67 and 63).
