The co-medalists secured two of 34 qualifying positions and ties available for the Championship proper. The cut line stopped at 74 by day’s end.

The 39th Middle-Amateur Championship will take place May 24-25 at Jericho National Golf Club.

New in 2022, Middle-Amateur Qualifying includes an alternate pool of players, which allows the Championship proper to reach its advertised field size. Alternate positions are determined by the recommended USGA tiebreaking method: Comparing the gross score from the last nine holes, last six holes, last three holes, last hole, and if still tied, positions will be decided by lot.

The Middle-Amateur Championship is open to males 25 years of age or older with a Handicap Index of 7.0 or better. It is a two-day, 36-hole stroke play event.

Jericho National previously hosted the Middle-Amateur, then an 18-hole stroke play event, in 2000. The event switched to a 36-hole format the following year.

A William Hyndman, III Player of the Year points event, the Middle-Amateur started in 1984, three years after the USGA created the U.S. Mid-Amateur as a formal championship for post-college amateurs. GAP followed suit with the USGA in creating a Middle-Amateur, but initially differed in its administration of the tournament in a couple of respects.

The most obvious difference was the age requirement. Prior to 2001, the GAP Middle-Amateur was only available to players 30 years of age or older.

The GAP Executive Committee reviewed and revised that age requirement in 2001 to match the USGA’s guidelines of 25 years of age or older for eligible players. It also, as previously mentioned, changed the format of the event to a two-day stroke play tournament with a cut to the low 70 players and ties after the first round.
