LIKE the rest of the field, Princess Superal can’t wait to get going in the Ladies Philippine Golf Tour (LPGT) resumption, eager to hack it out again in pursuit of top honors with a form she kept in top condition through the long break due to the spike of Covid-19 infections.

“We’re happy for the resumption (of the tour),” said the multi-titled Superal, who topped one and placed second twice when the circuit held its restart last year and early this season following an eight-month hiatus due to the global health crisis. “It’s been a long time and we really miss (the action).”

Despite the long layoff, action indeed is expected to be fierce right at the start of the International Container Terminal Serviceas Inc. (ICTSI) Sherwood Ladies Challenge on Wednesday at the tough Sherwood Hills Golf Club in Cavite with the likes of Daniella Uy, Chanelle Avaricio, Sarah Ababa, Apple Fudolin, Chihiro Ikeda, Marvi Monsalve, Gretchen Villacencia and Sheryl Villacencio likewise coming into the event keen and enthusiastic about their respective chances in the P750,000 event put up by ICTSI.

The circuit went on a three-month break due to surge of coronavirus cases in the NCR Plus last March with 2017 LPGT Order of Merit winner Pauline del Rosario, who topped on LPGT bubble tournament last year, opting to embark on a US tour as part of her buildup for the Ladies Professional Golf Association Q-School in October.

Superal is likewise prepping up for the resumption of her campaign in the Step Up Tour in Japan and the LPGT’s four-tournament schedule in the next five weeks will surely help her reach competitive form, not to mention bolster her confidence.

“I do workouts three times a week during the break while playing at least four rounds. Then back to the range and short game for the rest of the week,” added Superal.

After the Sherwood leg, action shifts to Eagle Ridge for the ICTSI Eagle Ridge Ladies Classic from July 14 to 16 at the Norman course then back to Riviera, also in Cavite, for the ICTSI Riviera Ladies Challenge from July 28 to 30 at the Langer course.

The Couples layout, also at Riviera, will host the next stop for the ICTSI Riviera Ladies Challenge from Augist 4 to 6 as the organizing Pilipinas Golf Tournaments Inc. got the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases and Games and Amusements Board nods to resume operations under strict health and safety guidelines,

Harmie Constantino turned back Superal to rule the last LPGT tournament before the lockdown at Eagle Ridge’s Aoki course last March but failed to make it two-in-row in her pro debut and the latter’s attempt to even things up got stalled following the temporary suspension of the ICTSI-backed circuit.
