Keanu prepares for ICTSI and ASIAN TOUR Q-Schools - Saldaña and Jahns 9-under at ORCHARD's FOUNDER'S CUP doubles.
Competing in his last tournament before trying out for the ICTSI Philippine Golf Tour's Q-School in the first week of December, Keanu and his partner Andres Saldaña shot 9-under par over 36 holes to win low gross at the 2013 FOUNDER's CUP of Orchard Golf and Country Club.
Disappointed about not having been able to play the PRO-AM of the ASIAN TOUR's RESORTS WORLD MANILA MASTERS at Manila Southwoods Golf Club (Jahns was paired with Swede Daniel Chopra and Eric Pineda, and the event was canceled by organizers after heavy rains), Keanu used Orchard's Founder's Cup to test his new set of PING S55 blades, courtesy of golf entrepreneur Joey Mendoza and GOLF DEPOT Philippines.
And scores did turn out pretty well for the two youngsters.
19-year old Saldaña fired an even-par round of 72, while Keanu contributed a 2-under par round on day 1 at Orchard's Arnold Palmer course.
Day 2 saw Saldaña turn on the heat with a 4-under par, while Jahns shot a 3-under par on Orchard's Gary Player course.
The boys though did not celebrate long during awarding since practice rounds with British PGA PRO Shane Warde and Senior PGA PRO Rick Gibson are scheduled at the Greg Norman course of Eagle Ridge Golf & Country Club.
Eagle Ridge hosts the ICTSI Philippine Golf Tour's Q-School from Dec. 2 to 5. The 2014 ASIAN TOUR Q-School is schedule for end of January at Hua Hin, Thailand.
