Revival of the ICTSI-PSA Cup at Southwoods: A Unique Event
The Manila Southwoods and ICTSI, two of the biggest entities involved in the development of golf in the country, will present the ninth playing of the Philippine Sportswriters Association (PSA) Cup at the well-manicured Legends course in Carmona on Friday.
This will be the first staging of the event since 2019, with Southwoods, which runs the most dominant amateur program of the last decade, and ICTSI, which bankrolls the country’s men’s and ladies pro tours, all too willing to lend their support.
“It will be a day of fun, camaraderie and friendly competition among golfing members of the PSA and our friends,” said Nelson Beltran, the Philippine Star sports editor and PSA president.
The 18-hole event will be first under Beltran’s watch. An overall champion will be named where PSA members will be competing with sponsor/friends, counting Philippine Football Federation president Mariano Araneta. Other sponsors of the event are San Miguel Corp., Jeff Cheng and the PFF, Philippine Airlines, Rain or Shine, NorthPort, PBA, Sen. Chiz Escudero, Milo Best Center, Akari, PVL, the Philippine Olympic Committee, Shakey’s, Batangas Rep. Eric Buhain and MacBeth.
