Guam’s National Men’s Golf Team will be competing in the 2018 MPI Generali Saujana Amateur Championship in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on May 2-4, 2018.  This prestigious and very competitive international golf event will be conducted at the famous Saujana Golf and Country Club, a course that’s rated as one of the most challenging golf courses in Malaysia.  The tournament committee has again graciously invited Guam’s top amateurs with handicap of 7 or below to compete in this year’s championship tournament.

Representing Guam will be veteran golfers Vic Borja, Daryl Poe, Brentt Salas and Redge Camacho.  They were selected based on the Guam National Golf Team Standings following the recent three (3) day ranking events.  They will be competing against Asia’s top and best amateur golfers. Departure from Guam is on Saturday, April 28th.

GNGF’s President Mr. Richard Sablan remarked, “we are confident that Vic, Daryl, Brentt and Redge will represent Guam very well as they are all solid players with great tournament experience.  GNGF is very proud of them. We’re also looking forward to having more Guam amateurs compete in upcoming regional tournaments in the near future particularly our junior golfers who are starting to emerge as great players and are college bound.  We’re very excited for them as there’s great opportunities that lie ahead of them.”

The tournament format will include both individual and team competitions.  Team competition standings will be based on two-man total score. Vic Borja and Daryl Poe will make up one of Guam’s two teams.  Brentt Salas and Redge Camacho will make up the other team.
