Fil-Am fever

GOLFERS from all walks of life enjoy the cool climate of Baguio City while enduring the challenges posed by the Baguio Country Club and Camp John Hay courses.

More than 1,300 golfers trooped to Baguio City for the 72nd staging of the Fil-Am Invitational in late November. They came with different objectives, mostly to have fun and enjoy the cool weather of the summer capital.

A handful, however, had other things in mind.

Manila Southwoods, for instance, sent four teams with the intention of sweeping all the championship divisions in both the regular and senior tournaments.

The Carmona-based squad succeeded in only three classes with Alpha Phi Omega Golfers-Team Alpha bagging the senior Am-Championship bracket, winning by five over Srixon IMG.

Other than that, Southwoods was unchallenged in the regular tournament, sweeping both Fil and Am-Championship divisions with plenty to spare. It also defended its senior Fil-Championship class.

It would take some time before a team can provide Southwoods a run for its money, but until such time, participants can take solace in the camaraderie and friendship forged during the two-week extravaganza.
