Pagunsan blog: My controversial baby

  • SHARE
Philippines' Juvic Pagunsan maybe spending most of his time playing in Japan nowadays. But for fans of the Asian Tour, he will be best remembered for winning the Asian Tour Order of Merit in 2011.
Pagunsan took time off after his second round at the Asia-Pacific Open Golf Championship Diamond Cup where he posted a one-over-par 72 to share his thoughts on life on the road and his new bundle of joy whom he calls his controversial baby!

I’ve been playing more in Japan nowadays simply because the traveling time between venues is much easier.
Furthermore, there's always a clash in schedules between the Asian Tour and Japan Golf Tour.
I like playing on the Asian Tour but it can be hard with the conflicting schedules.
The golf courses in Japan are definitely one of the best in the world and I love playing under these conditions.
Whenever I have time, I’ll be spending it with my little boy back home.
He’s one year and four months now and is a bundle of joy.
I call him the controversial baby because I had to withdraw from the Philippines Open after the first round last year as my wife was in labour already.
Although I was in contention, I told myself that the baby's more important and I had to be around for my family.
I named him P.J. My daughter’s called L.J. I put two letters between the both of them as my last name is a little long!
Ends.
