MONROE, La. (AP) — The 24th edition of the Louisiana Golf Association Senior Amateur Championship starts Thursday at Monroe's Bayou DeSiard Country Club.

The LGA says 104 players are set to compete over 54 holes and will include seven former title holders.

Last year's champion, Doug Farr of Monroe, returns to defend his title. He fired a final round 69 to win by two shots over Jay Lavespere of Alexandria. Lavespere is among those in this year's competition.

The club's course, designed by Perry Maxwell, will play to a par of 72 at slightly less than 6,800 yards. The low 60 scorers and ties after 36 holes will survive the cut with the leaders going off the first tee around 10:30 a.m. on Saturday.

Play gets underway Thursday at 7:30 a.m.
