Superal fumbles with 73, slips to 3rd

Saturday, 25 October 2014 00:00 Published in Sports

Princess Superal reeled back with a three-over 73 and fell three strokes behind Czech Simon Zach after two rounds of the 18th Faldo Series Grand Final at the Greenbrier's Old White TPC in West Virginia Thursday.
The reigning US Girls Junior champion failed to sustain her impressive opening 69 and fumbled with two bogeys in the first three holes, birdied No. 7 but dropped another stroke on the next and missing the 15th green for another bogey.
Her 142 total dropped her to third in the overall race for the coveted Faldo Series Champion's Trophy, which includes the boys with Zach matching par 70 for a 139 and a one-stroke lead over American Zachary Bouchou, who had a 140 after a 71.
Despite slipping in the overall race, the top ICTSI-backed bet Superal gained a two-shot lead in the girls' Under-21 section with American Megan Khang taking the challenger's role at 144 after a fiery 68. Czech Marie Lunachkova carded a 72 for third at 146.
Pauline del Rosario, Superal's teammate at ICTSI stable and in the national team that won the recent Santi Cup in Brunei, all but wrapped up the girls' U-16 crown with a 145 after a 74, posting a 10-shot lead over Scot Shannon McWilliam, who skied to an 81 for a 155. Lucy Walton of England pooled a 158 after an 81.
Del Rosario hit two birdies on Nos. 9 and 12 but bogeyed Nos. 6, 7, 11 and 18 and made a double-bogey on No. 15.
The 83-player field from 20 countries have been divided into five age-groups with the top three boys and two girls after 54 holes to each receive a trophy and an exemption into the Asia Grand Final at Mission Hills Golf Club in China next March. The leading boy and girl will also be invited to play in a professional Tour event and the title of Faldo Series Champion will go to the player with the lowest gross score, regardless of age or gender.

Fostering creativity in GMA employees

Saturday, 25 October 2014 00:00 Published in Life Style

Kapuso actress-host Heart Evangelista, Philippines' Pop Diva Kuh Ledesma and visual artist Nemesio "Nemi" Miranda lent their time and creative know-how while serving as the panel of judges in GMA Network's Art Gap Open 2014: GMA through the Decades.
Fostering the spirit of Kapuso creativity and innovation, GMA Art Gap Open is an annual art competition for network employees to explore and express their artistic abilities outside the workplace through various media such as paintings, sculpture and photography.
This year's contest featured a group painting competition highlighting the colorful history of the Kapuso Network with the theme "GMA through the Decades." Each group was given a decade to interpret, beginning from the 1950s, when GMA was founded, until the present time.
Further adding prestige to the event was the participation of select Angono artists who served as mentors for each group. Angono, Rizal, widely recognized as the "art capital of the Philippines," is home to prominent figures such as Carlos "Botong" Francisco, National Artist for the visual arts and Lucio San Pedro, National Artist for music.
After two successful solo art exhibits this year, Kapuso star and budding artist Heart Evangelista is no stranger to exploring her creative side. Venturing outside the realm of show business, Heart was encouraged to rediscover her passion for painting which had bloomed in her early years. On judging the competition, the Startalk host says, "It is great that GMA encourages their employees to develop their creativity. These contestants are very gifted people and it is an honor to be asked to judge this competition."
As an art enthusiast and painter, Kapuso actress and recording artist Kuh Ledesma was likewise pleased to be chosen as a judge for the competition. "The skill displayed by the artists in this contest was very impressive. It was also interesting to see their interpretations of GMA's history," says Kuh, who was recently seen in the romantic drama My Destiny and is featured as one of the celebrity guest judges on GMA's newest reality talent search, Bet Ng Bayan.
For painter, sculptor and muralist Nemi Miranda, the artworks showed promise, saying that it was "a good start." Known for his "imaginative figurism" art philosophy which entails the recreation of reality from memory as opposed to having a model, Miranda's works include the Edsa Shrine mural and the mural relief sculpture on the parade grounds of Fort Bonifacio.
The winners of the Art Gap Open 2014 competition were announced during GMA Network's General Assembly last Oct. 16 with GMA Network chairman and CEO Felipe L. Gozon leading the awarding ceremony.
 First place went to the Post Production Department for their painting on the '70s while the Program Support Department won second place for their interpretation of the '80s. Another group from the Program Support department also garnered third place for their rendition of the years spanning 2011 to 2014, while the People's Choice Award, tabulated from votes sent in by Kapuso employees, was conferred upon the artists from the Engineering Group who depicted the ‘50s. The winning groups were each awarded with a cash prize and a certificate.
