About The Championship:
What began in 1984 as a friendly tournament for post-college amateur golfers had evolved into one of the most competitive and sought-after titles on the MGA Championship schedule. When the event debuted in 1984, Peter Drooker captured the inaugural title at the Country Club of New Seabury. Since that time, 15 different golfers have claimed the title of their own. In fact, 10 of the current top 15 point getters in the Richard D. Haskell MGA Player of the Year Standings will be competing this year.
