Jobim Carlos rules Iloilo Golf Challenge

first_img“It’s better to survive and win,” says Jobim Carlos. ICTSI JOBIM Carlos avoided a final round meltdown with timely conversions to capture the 2018 ICTSI Iloilo Golf Challenge at the Iloilo Golf and Country Club in Santa Barbara, Iloilo.Carlos had a wide advantage heading into the final day but he suddenly lost his touch on the tricky surface midway through the last 18 holes to allow Guido Van der Valk and Tim Stewart to pull within one four flights ahead heading to the stretch on Saturday.A runner-up in the ICTSI Negros Occidental Classic a week ago, Carlos got a lucky break when Van der Valk faded with back-to-back bogeys and Stewart flubbed a six-footer for par on the 17th and blew his bid for a playoff.“It’s better to survive and win,” said Carlos, who captured his third victory in the last two-and-a-half months after also ruling the Philippine Golf Tour Asia Riviera leg and the PGT Mindanao swing. “I played cautiously in the last six holes to avert going into playoff again,” said Carlos, referring to his loss to Negrense Juvic Pagunsan last week, a setback that only toughened up the young rising star.Carlos also turned in a couple of runner-up finishes and two top six efforts with his latest victory, firming up his hold of the Order of Merit lead heading to the last two tournaments of the circuit.Stewart wound up with a 68 and settled for second while American Lexus Keoninh rallied with a 67 and tied with Rene Menor and Van der Valk, who carded identical 69s, at 275.Joenard Rates and Jhonnel Ababa flinched, with the former also fumbling with a 72 and the latter limping with a 73 to drop to joint sixth at 276 with Reymon Jaraula and Justin Quiban, who fought back with 66 and 68, respectively./PNlast_img read more

Orioles recall McFarland; Jones sits again on Wednesday

first_imgThe Orioles tinkered with their bullpen yet again prior to Wednesday’s game in Boston by recalling left-handed pitcher T.J. McFarland and optioning right-hander Oliver Drake to Triple-A Norfolk.After spending the required 10 days with the Tides upon being sent down on June 14, McFarland brings more length to a bullpen that’s worked hard in recent weeks. Drake was recalled from Norfolk on Sunday but did not appear in a game in his latest stint with the Orioles.McFarland sports a 1.93 ERA in 9 1/3 innings for the Orioles this season, but that mark is deceiving as the 26-year-old southpaw has allowed 12 hits and issued eight walks, numbers that have earned him a 4.71 Fielding Independent Pitching (FIP) mark. The former Rule 5 pick settled into a long relief role last season while posting a 2.76 ERA in 58 2/3 innings of work, but his control issues have been problematic in 2015.The Orioles will need to make another roster move on Thursday with starting pitcher Miguel Gonzalez scheduled to return from the disabled list to start against the Red Sox. Right-handed pitcher Mychal Givens is expected to be sent back to the minors to make room, returning Baltimore to its normal seven-man bullpen.As anticipated, center fielder Adam Jones was out of the lineup for the sixth time in eight games on Wednesday with David Lough once again replacing him in center field.last_img read more
