BIRMINGHAM, AL (September 28, 2016) -- Beginning Wednesday and continuing through Friday, 52 teams will descend upon the Country Club of Birmingham for the 12th playing of the USGA Men's State Team Championship. The field is comprised of three-man teams from all 50 states, plus the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.

Play for the 54-hole stroke-play event will take place on the Country Club of Birmingham's West Course, a Donald Ross design that was opened in 1926. The course, which hosted the 2013 U.S. Mid- Amateur won by Mike McCoy, is a par-71 layout that plays at 7,122 yards.

The USGA Men's State Team Championship was last played in 2014 on the Pete Dye Course at French Lick Resort and it was the Texas team of Zach Atkinson, Colby Harwell and Aaron Hickman claiming the title. Florida finished three-strokes behind as Texas won its record fourth title.
