Baguio—The seniors’ tournament begins Saturday with players bracketed in the Fil and Am A, B and C opening their birds in their respective divisions in the 72nd Fil-Am Men’s Invitational to be held at the Baguio Country Club and Camp John Hay Golf Club courses here.
Camp John Hay Hotels is the favorite in Fil-A, while Baguio Blue Bloods is the marked team in Am-A although it faces stiff competition against Forest Hills and Pradera Verde.
The Fil-B will be as exciting as co-hosts BCC and CJH go head-to-head. However, they can’t be complacent because Cargo Freight and Davao Eaglemasters I might spring a surprise.
The ICSI-TMI squad, one of the most experienced in the field, might go all the way to the crown in Fil-C.
On Saturday, Luista Golf Club will defend its Fil-Championship crown it won in 2019 before the Seniors Fil-Am was grounded due to the pandemic. One-time champ Megafiber heads the list in Am-Championship.
