MANILA, Philippines - The country’s top amateurs, led by Rupert Zaragosa, Gio Gandionco, and Lloyd Go, get to see action against a slew of upcoming stars in the Canlubang Amateur Open, which gets going tomorrow at Cangolf’s north and south courses in Laguna.

The 54-hole tournament, ending Oct. 5, serves as part of the Globe Business Amateur Golf Circuit sanctioned by the National Golf Association of the Phils. with a spirited battle for top honors expected in the premier Championship Division.

Art Arbole nipped Clyde Mondilla in the playoff to bag last year’s crown but the duo has since joined the pro ranks, leaving Zaragosa and company to dispute top honors in the 13th staging of the event hosted by Cangolf, a long-time backer of Philippine golf.
