It’s USGA Mid-Am week.
The granddaddy of all Bobby’s Boys tournaments.
A tournament full of lawyers, salesmen, accountants and realtors. The championship for post-college golfers who have started a career in something other than golf.
Two hundred and sixty-four of the best mid-amateurs will tee it up in Atlanta, Ga from October 7-12. Saturday and Sunday, each golfer will play one round at Capital City Club Crabapple and one round at Atlanta National Golf Club. After 36 holes, the 64 low scorers will move on to match play. This format will continue until a champ is crowned Thursday afternoon.
To the player that comes to Atlanta, Ga and puts together the best week of golf in his life, a prize that is truly priceless awaits. His award will be the opportunity to tee it up in a little tournament Bobby Jones started just a few hours from Atlanta; The Masters.
Check out the story on 2016 USGA Mid-Am Champ, Stewart Hagestad. Dude went on to make the cut and finish 36th in the Masters. Epic
So if you find yourself in Atlanta from October 7-12, do yourself a favor and make the trip over to the Capital City Club(Free parking and free admission). I promise you, the golf played this weekend will be 107% more competitive than the golf you watched in New Jersey at this year’s President’s Cup.
USA! USA! USA!
As I watch this upcoming week, I’ll be pulling for a great friend and the best golfer I know, Clay Guerin. Guerin has played the best golf of his life in the last two years. Winning the 2016 Alabama Mid-Am, the 2017 Indian Pines Invitational and recently was selected to join the Alabama team during the upcoming Southeastern Challenge Match. One of those is not like the other.
Hit ’em straight!
