67th Mason-Dixon Matches 0CT. 13-14 - ROBERT TRENT JONES GOLF CLUB

The Golf Association of Philadelphia goes for the three-peat, this time on the road, in the Mason-Dixon Matches.

The Mason-Dixon Matches pits two 12-man teams, including one Junior and two Senior players, from the Golf Association of Philadelphia and the Middle Atlantic Golf Association (MAGA) over two days of competition. The Day One format is six four-ball matches. Day Two is 12 singles matches. Each match is worth one point. Ties are halved.

Since 1952, the matches have been played annually. In last year's competition at Lancaster Country Club, Team GAP came out victorious, 10.5–7.5, for the second rendition in a row and currently leads the all-time series, 35-26. There have been five ties.
