ABOUT THE Wisconsin Match Play

When the Wisconsin State Amateur was changed to stroke play in 1971, there was a need for the addition of a State Match Play Championship. The WSGA returned this event to the tournament schedule in 1975. This growing event has been expanded to allow 64 qualifiers to enter into match- play competition following an 18-hole stroke-play qualifying. Five 18-hole pre-qualifying tournaments are held in May and June for all those players who are not exempt. To be eligible, players must have a WSGA Handicap Index of 9.4 or less.
