2018 PIRA Golf Tournament: Fun on and off the fairways

 

Fun, fun and more fun. This in a nutshell was how participants, brokers, service providers and industry associations described the 2018 PIRA Golf Tournament held recently at the Riviera Golf Club in Silang, Cavite.

2018 PIRA Networking Golf Tournament

 

Some 50 executive golfers from various insurance companies participated in the annual tournament sponsored by Asia Reinsurance Brokers, Pte. Ltd., Computer Professionals Inc., Globe Telecommunications, Merimen Technologies Philippines, Inc., National Reinsurance Corporation of the Philippines, NTT Data Philippines,  Passenger Accident Management and Insurance Agency, Inc. (PAMI), Stradcom, TeamAsia, SGV, UCPB General Insurance Company, Inc., Philippine Machinery Management Services Corp. (PMMSC), KRM Reinsurance Brokers Philippines, Inc. and 3i Infotech.

 

Gerry Castañeda played like a pro, racking up two birdies and 12 pars for the lowest gross score of 74 to emerge as overall champion.

 

The M Pioneer Insurance Inc. President and CEO Gerry Castañeda overcame his four bogeys to edge Luis Cebrero by one stroke for the overall title.

 

Cebrero, Head of Sales of Mapfre Insular had an equally impressive performance, carding three birdies, 11 pars and two bogeys. He clinched the Class A title with a gross of 75 and a net of 69.

 

Ian Cuyegkeng bagged the Class A runner-up plaque by winning over Tournament Director Joel Libo-on. Both golfers ended with a net score of 70, but Cuyegkeng was declared the better golfer having scored an eagle on the 7th hole.

 

Class B was also a close match, with Amon Ladeza scoring a gross of 85 and a net of 70, winning by a single stroke over three other golfers -- Ike Acosta, Anchit Mendoza, and Erwin Dignadice -- who all scored a net of 70.

 

Acosta was declared the Class B runner-up by virtue of his two birdies, while Mendoza won the second-runner-up for his seven pars.

 

For Class C, Jun Banzon edged Nivan Cron by one stroke, 76-77, in net score to emerge as winner. Vir Cruz scored a 78 to place second-runner-up.

 

Meanwhile, the star-studded Ladies Division ended with a triple tie with the top 3 all registering a net of 72. Former WGAP player Sarah Cruz eventually emerged as winner, having scored one birdie and eight pars. She bested actresses Glydel Mercado and Samantha Lopez.

 

The event was made more memorable by the very engaging emceeing of former PIRA Trustee Joselito Bantayan during the awarding ceremonies.

 

Tournament Director Joel Libo-on thanked all participants and sponsors for supporting the tournament which is now on its 5th year.

 

"We truly wanted to make it fun for everybody while providing an opportunity to network and build relationships among insurance industry executives and suppliers”, he said.

 

PIRA General Manager Roger Concepcion hailed the players and sponsors for joining and making this tournament a successful one. He promised to make the tournament even bigger and better -- and definitely more fun -- next year.
