Acuavera, who has zero handicap, fired a combined 74 points during the two-day tournament.

He also fired 318 yards at Pinewoods to clinch the longest drive in that fairway.

He scored the longest drive at BCC at 298 yards, but opted to award the trophy to Andy Endrano, wgo got the second longest drive at 271 yards.

Lawyer George Dumawing also stole the thunder from the more than 140 players when he scored a hole-in-one at the par-three hole 12.

Despite his age, Dumawing used a 56-degree Vokey-design Titleist sand wedge, not an approach wedge, and a Taylormade 0 ball that avoided the water hazard on the left side of the tricky green.

Police Lt/Col Johnny Balaki topped the men’s class A with 62 points followed by Richie Abalos with 57 and Albert Balingit with 56.

Contractor Bernard Capuyan clinched the men’s B championship trophy with 58 points followed by fellow contractor Jun de Leon with 57 and Rey Perez with 56.
