JUANPAN T. Guerrero topped the Saipan Golfers Association’s April Ace of the Month Tournament held on Sept. 6 at the Kingfisher Golf Links.

Guerrero displayed control in his swing as he led the pack in the front nine. With enough pars and birdies, he managed to notch a satisfying gross score of 40.

He started to slip away during the back nine, which seemed to be the tougher portion of the course, but he stayed consistent enough to end with a gross of 42 for a total score of 82. With a handicap of 14, Guerrero concluded the tournament with a net score of 68 to clinch the April Ace of the Month title.

John "Nanni" Cruz had a fairly even performance as he gave Guerrero a good scare, sticking closely behind throughout the tournament.

Cruz shot well, ending the front nine with a gross of 44. He then slightly improved his odds in the back nine with 43 to hold a total gross of 87. With a handicap of 18, Cruz had a net score of 69, which earned him a second place finish.

In third and fourth places were Ed Manibusan and Nick Sablan. Both outperformed Guerrero and Cruz.

Manibusan claimed third place with a score of 39 and 40 for the front and back nine totaling a gross of 79, but with a handicap of 7 only, he ended with a net score of 72.

Sablan had an even better output, scoring 38 and 40 in the front and back for a gross total of 78, but ended in fourth place because of his handicap of 6 that gave him a net total of 72.

Players were recognized for the Closest to the Pin and Longest Drive challenge.

Nick Sablan was first on the list for Closest to the Pin at hole #6 followed by Joe Sablan at hole #12 and Ed Manibusan at hole #15.

Das Krishnan also made the spotlight alongside Juanpan Guerrero for the longest drive with Krishnan claiming hole #7 and Guerrero taking hole #11.

The year’s other  Aces are Ed Manibusan for January, Jung Eun Taek for February and Nick Sablan for March.
