Justin Quiban seeks to become the first two-leg winner in the inaugural Philippine Golf Tour Asia as he banners the elite cast in the ICTSI Eagle Ridge Invitational unfolding Wednesday (Jan. 17) at the Eagle Ridge Golf and Country Club in Gen. Trias, Cavite.

Quiban scored a breakthrough win after two final round fold-ups in the PGTA, posting a three-stroke romp over Joenard Rates in the CAT (Central Azucarera de Tarlac) Open at the Luisita Golf and Country Club last month.

He thus became the fifth winner in the first five legs of the PGTA, joining the likes of Miguel Tabuena (Southwoods), Rene Menor (Splendido), Clyde Mondilla (Riviera) and Tony Lascuña (Wack Wack) in the early roster of winners in the region’s newest tour put up by ICTSI.

But the 21-year-old Quiban expects to have his hands full this week as he slugs it out with a slew of rivals eager to start the new year with a victory for the confidence and momentum needed for another busy season on the local circuit organized by Pilipinas Golf Tournaments, Inc.
