By Adrian Flores

After staging the most animated and intense event in its history, Junior Golf Foundation of the Philippines chairman emeritus Gerry Handog is calling for healing and unity for the two parties that participated in the just concluded election held at the Orchard.

Team Ogan of Oliver Gan and Team Play of incumbent president Nikki Ng battled through their campaigns as it were a national election, with each throwing accusations at one another.

“Election is over. Please let’s start a new chapter and move on. The first thing to do is to reconcile,” Handog said.

“When that is done, let’s buckle down to work and take care of the welfare of all the junior golfers in the country,” he said.

Team Ogan won the majority vote with Gan garnering the most votes followed by Mariel Macasaet, Aurelio Gomez, Ely Saludar, Baltaire Balangauan, Jun Cedo,, AJ Adiviso and Lue Reine de Guzman.

Those who made it for Team Play were Charlie Go, vice mayor Menchie Abalos, Stephanie Chua, Victor Aliwalas, Marc Rosca and Marc Young.
