Gandionco scores another victory-A A +A
Tuesday, August 5, 2014
CEBU’s junior golfer Jose Angelo “Gio” Gandionco is back in the country and no matter how he keeps his profile low, his impressive power plays get the country’s attention.
This time, he won the 5th Pro-Am Golf tournament at the Apo Golf and Country Club in Davao City.
Gandionco, paired with pro golfer Jimmy Byron, bested the 110 participants of the three-day annual pro-am competition.
“Winning the pro-am was kind of unexpected for me. It was my first time playing the pro-am in that kind of alternate format like the pro hit the first shot then I hit the second, then he hits the next,” said Gandionco.
Gandionco added that it was only during the last day when he realized that he and his pro partner Byron had a chance of winning.
Gandionco, 19, is studying at the Santa Clara University in California and playing for the school’s golf varsity team.
