Que fires 2 eagles, leads by 7

MORONG, Bataan — Angelo Que shot two eagles in his round of six-under-par 66 and stormed to a seven-stroke lead with one round left in the ICTSI Anvaya Cove Invitational here yesterday.

The field was left gasping as Que put on a one-man show and could have added one more stroke to his lead were it not for a bogey on the final hole.

Japan’s Toru Nakajima was in second after he failed to mount a charge and went home with an even-par 72 after trailing Que by one shot at the start of the day.

“All I need is watch out for Nakajima. Even if the rest would score low, I wouldn’t mind since they’re too far behind,” said the 34-year-old Que, who assembled an 11-under 205.

But even Nakajima seems to concede the title. “Overcoming a seven-stroke deficit is a difficult task,” he said.

A bogey on the first hole where he dropped to a share of the lead with the Japanese, did not presage what was to happen in the next several holes.

He quickly went five-under in the next four holes, spiked by a 40-foot eagle putt on the drivable par-4 332-yard No. 3. He made the turn at 32, eagled the par-5 No. 10 from 20 feet after a 7-iron second shot from 160 yards, then birdied the next before settling for a run of pars.

In joint third place, 17 strokes behind, were Antonio Lascuna (69), Rufino Bayron (71), Joenard rates (71) and Albin Negino (75).
