ABOUT THE Golfweek Senior National Match Play

Over the course of three days, players in each bracket will be whittled to one Senior National Match-Play champion in each division. Unlike other match play tournaments, The Golfweek Senior National Match Play is not a one loss and done tournament. As players are eliminated from match-play they will enter a consolation stroke-play competition using the stableford scoring system.
