What is the National State Team Championship?
The National State Team Championship (formerly known as the US Mid-Amateur Team Championship and Midwest Cup) is a multi-state team golf tournament with recognition for the individual stroke-play champions. The event includes the best Mid-Amateur and Senior Amateur golfers in the US with invitations based on the player-of-the-year points list provided by each state golf association.
UGA Selection Process
The UGA will select seven players to represent Utah at the National State Team Championship. The selection process will emphasize current UGA Champions and PPR rankings. Eligibility criteria is listed below.
The UGA will only select players with the unquestioned ability to appropriately represent the UGA with character, sportsmanship, and integrity. Primary consideration for selection will be UGA Champions and player performance rankings. The UGA Competitions Committee has the right to exclude any player should they not meet the standards of conduct found in Rule 1.2 of the Rules of Golf or should the UGA competitions committee find they are deficient in character, sportsmanship or integrity.
This event is only open to participants who are 25 years of age or older. The three senior players must be 50 years old or older when the Championship is played. Each team member must agree to participate in all functions relating to the National State Team Championship. Players may only play in two of the following three traveling teams events in a calendar year: Pac Coast, National State Team, Utah vs. Arizona Shootout. The UGA will cover entry fees, provide a stipend towards travel costs, and provide team apparel. Players will cover travel costs not covered by stipend.
The competitions committee has imposed a rule that players are only allowed to be selected for two of the three major UGA traveling teams so one layer isn’t filling a spot on all UGA traveling teams and more players will have an opportunity to represent the UGA/Utah. The three events are the Pacific Coast Amateur, National State Team and UT/AZ Shootout.
