Juvic Pagunsan 5 adrift in Taiheiyo Masters Dante Navarro (The Philippine Star) – November 9, 2018 – 12:00am MANILA, Philippines — Juvic Pagunsan hit two late birdies to card a one-under 69 and trail Shota Akiyoshi by five at the start of the VISA Taiheiyo Masters at the Taiheiyo Club Gotemba Course in Shizuoka, Japan yesterday. The smooth-swinging former Asian Tour No. 1 rebounded from a three-bogey, two-birdie stint with birdies on Nos. 15 and 18, moving him from the middle of the starting 84-player field to joint 17th with nine others in the $1.8 million event. Akiyoshi, meanwhile, used a strong start to seize control, ramming in three birdies and gunning down an eagle on the par-5 No. 3 for a solid 30 then added a 34 at the back for a 64 and a two-stroke lead over Sang Hyun Park, who shot a 66.
