NORMAN "Dung" Tenorio and Tony Satur were the stars of Saturday's #WeBelieve Two-Person Scramble Golf Tournament hosted by former Rep. Angel Demapan at  LaoLao Bay Golf & Resort.

Throughout the tournament, Tenorio and Satur were in sync, supporting each other in the front and back nine segments of the competition. After completing the front nine, however, they did fall a bit behind with a gross of 33. But the back nine was the better part of the day for Tenorio and Satur as they picked up the pace, making more pars and birdies to end with a gross of 30, which brought them in the lead. Their gross total of 63 clinched the top spot and the $500 cash prize.

Paul Kaipat and Franco Santos gave a good fight, but could not maintain their performance during the back nine and had to settle for second place and the $300 cash prize. They had a very strong start as they completed the front nine with the lowest gross of the day at 31. But as they transitioned to the remaining nine holes, they started to struggle, scoring a gross of 33 for a total score of 64.

Rep. Marco Peter and JJ Atalig also showcased their chemistry, earning the next best score of 32 in the front nine, but they dropped to a gross of 33 at the back to combine for a gross total of 65 and settled for the $200 third prize.

In the Double-Peoria event, John Rebuenog and Alex Tudela displayed their dominance. Slowly but surely, the pair finished the front nine with a gross score of 34 and continued to increase their odds in the back nine with a score of 32 for a total of 66. Even with a handicap of -1.2, the duo remained standing tall with a net score of 67.2 to secure first place and the $500 cash prize.

Coming in at second place were Christine Route and Joe “Kamikaze” Camacho. They trailed closely behind the first-place team, closing the front nine with a gross of 36 and improving their output to 33 at the back for a total score of 69.  With no handicap, their net score of 69  was good enough for the $300 second prize.

In third place were Alex Sablan and Gov. Ralph DLG Torres. They did fairly well, scoring 41 in the front nine and 38 in the back nine for total of 79. With a handicap of 9.6, they finished third with a net score of 69.4 for which they received $200 cash.

The following players were also recognized:

Closest to the Pin winners Carl Hocog (hole   No. 3) and Phil Fejeran (hole No. 7) drew a distance of 4'2" along with Ned Norita at hole No. 3 with 7'8" and Frank Sablan in hole No. 17 with a distance of 4'3".

Joe “Kamikaze” Camacho claimed the title of Aggressive Drive with a distance of 84'67" at hole #6.

Nick Leon Guerrero clinched the Accurate Drive title at Hole No. 9 with a distance of 4'8" while Paul Kaipat claimed the Longest Drive-Men tile with a distance of 269 yards and Janeeka Atalig won the Longest Drive-Women title at 272 yards.

A total of 126 players participated in the tournament. "We were shooting for 80 players so to have 126 players today was a very overwhelming response and we are very appreciative of that," said Angel Demapan, who is a Precinct 1 House candidate of the NMI Republican Party.

"It was really the golfers asking for a tournament,” he added. “My campaign chairman JJ Atalig is one of the well-known golfers on island, and my golf tournament chairman, Joey Dela Cruz,  is also a golfer. So everything just fell into place.”

For their generous hole sponsorships, Demapan would also like to thank Sen. Sixto Igisomar, Rep. Joseph Leepan Guerrero, Senate President Victor Hocog, Rep. Marco Peter, Randall Masga Pangelinan, Roy Aldan Ada, House Floor Leader JP Sablan, Daniel Aquino, Rep. Ivan Alfonso Blanco, Rep. Ralph Naraja Yumul, Cecilia Taitano, Karl Nabors, Jesse and Wawa Atalig, Annie’s Ice Cup, Stitched Hat Co., Tribe Marianas, Latte Stone Hotel, Seaside Restaurant, Helios Engineering Group, and Hive Analytics.
