CEBU CITY – Manila Southwoods captured the Founders division of the just-ended 33rd Philippine Airlines Senior Interclub golf team championships Saturday.

The Carmona-based squad collected 143 points at the Alta Vista Golf Club for 530 overall, 12 points ahead of Valley Golf Club.

Theody Pascual led Southwoods with 52 points and got solid support from Ryan Abdon (48) and Bong Sison (43).

Valley matched Southwoods’ final round score behind Eddy Manzanares (52), Abraham dela Cruz (46) and Jimmy Dy (45) to edge third placer Riviera Golf by just two points.

Riviera managed only 130 points through Chanyeong Gim (46), Efren Alvez (42) and Manuel Salgado (42) to settle for third place, a point ahead of Negros Occidental.
