“I’m very glad and very proud that I played with the champion and number one professional golf player of the Philippines Juvic Pagunsan who was my partner in a double team.”

Thus said with elation Engr.Faizal Hasiman as he recalled the games played during a pro-am golf tournament held in this city last March 23-24 at the Zamboanga Golf and Country Club in Upper Calarian.

Hasiman said that together with Pagunsan as partner they won in the Best Ball game.

Hasiman’s team also grabbed the championship trophy in the Class C  division.

Other who played in the championship round for Best Ball were the teams of Congressman Erbie A. Fabian and Nonoy Pactorin, a professional golfer from Manila, Jessie Balasabas of Canlubang Laguna and local partner Djangol Chiong and Patrick Lee and partner Joseph Dy.

Hasiman said he can not believe that he played side by side with a world champion in the person of Juvic Pagunsan in a golf tournament.

Pagunsan of Negros Oriental defeated international ace golfer Tiger Woods  last month in a golf tournament in Singapore.

According to Hasiman, he also played with another champion golfer in the person of Jessie Balasabas of Canlubang in a  team together with Sulu Vice Gov. Ben Loong and Van  Doroshic, a Dutch.

“Pagunsan is very humble .... very low profile type person and very down-to-earth. Likewise with Jessie Balasabas. I wish they will continue doing good in the sport of golf and more than champions, they will give great names  to the Philippines.  — Allen Abastillas
