Arevalo nears Nomura Cup berth

By Adrian Flores

Kristoffer Arevalo moved one step closer to a stint for the national team after firing a two under par 70 in the fourth round to virtually clinch one of the spots for the upcoming Nomura Cup tournament played at the Masters Course of the Manila Southwoods Golf and Country Club in Cavite.

With that 70, Arevalo hiked his total to 285, five up on Elee Bisera (73-290). Jacob Rolida (77-293) is at solo third followed by Shinichi Suzuki (76-294).

Jonas Magcalayo and Edison Tabalin each signed for a 71 to clinch 296 and 298, respectively.

The top four finishers will make up the team which will compete in the Nomura Cup in November also at Manila Southwoods.
