2014 U.S. Mid-Amateur qualifying results
Did you know that the state of Pennsylvania has held more USGA Championships than any other? Merion and Oakmont may get most of the accolades, but a beautiful Lehigh Valley club called Saucon Valley has had the third most USGA events in the state, with the 2014 Mid-Am being the 7th.

Saucon Valley will provide both qualifying courses (The Old and Weyhill) to handle qualifying, with match play being conducted at The Old. And the 54-hole Saucon Valley CC will still have one high caliber course left for member play.

The names of the qualifiers below only tell part of the story. That's because two of the favorites are exempt players -- defending champion Mike McCoy of Iowa and recent U.S. Amateur quarterfinalist Nathan Smith. Smith has an opportunity to win his fifth Mid- Am, which would be the most in history. He'll be playing in his home state of Pennsylvania and he won't have to go up against players that bomb it 350 yards like he did at the U.S. Am.

In short, it's going to be hard to bet against Nathan Smith doing it again.

Below is a summary of the results of 2014 U.S. Mid-Amateur qualifying. For detailed results, please follow the results link below:
