MANILA, Philippines —  The 75th Philippine Airlines Senior Interclub golf team championships unwrap today at the Pueblo de Oro Golf and Country Club in Cagayan de Oro with title holder Luisita bracing for a tough, tough challenge.

With only five holdovers from last year’s championship squad, the Tarlac-based squad is facing a tough title defense against the souped-up Canlubang and Manila Southwoods and a dangerous crew from Del Monte.

“It will be tough to retain the championship but players are ready and excited for the tournament to start,” said Luisita non-playing captain Jeric Hechanova. “Luisita will be the underdog this year.”

Canlubang looms as the biggest threat to Luisita’s title-retention bid.

With the addition of John Paul Reyes and Jess Hernandez, Canlubang skipper Tony Olives said they have a good chance of regaining the crown.

Manila Southwoods added many-time Alabang Country Club champion Jorge Gallent to its lineup, hinting at a serious bid to end the Luisita-Canlubang stranglehold of the championship division.

With Gallent teaming up with Junjun Plana, the Carmona-based squad and Del Monte are expected to make the event a four-horse race.

The first round in the championship division will be at the Pueblo Golf and Country Club.
