Fil-Am golf tourney gets going Nov. 23
BAGUIO—More than 1,200 players will be seeing action when the 67th Fil-Am Invitational, regarded as the world’s biggest amateur event, tees off on Nov. 23 at the Camp John Hay and Baguio Country Club courses here.
The team event, which gathers golfers of all skill levels, will run until Dec. 10 with San Miguel-Northern Cement II seeking to repeat in the centerpiece Fil-Championship Division.
Many-time national champion Rupert Zaragosa and the other top amateurs will be seeing action over two
totally different layouts designed to test the golfers.
Though very short and playing as a par-61, Baguio CC remains to be the beast among the two courses, requiring players to hit all sorts of shots, and testing their physical conditioning.
Camp John Hay, meanwhile, is rounding out to championship form and offers a different test with its greens to be its formidable defense.
