Cebu’s Lois Kaye (LK) Go and Gen Nagai, who calls Cebu home, open their respective bids for repeats on Tuesday, January 7, 2020, when the National Stroke Play Championship gets off the ground at the tough-as-nails Langer layout of The Riviera in Silang, Cavite.

Nagai, who nipped Thai Youth Olympics gold medalist Vanchai Luangnitikul in sudden death to clinch the men’s diadem last year, knows that he is in for a tough week with the tournament drawing the finest names in the country and a sprinkling of foreign talent.
