The four golfers who posted quarterfinal victories in the 36th U.S. Mid-Amateur Championship on Wednesday morning not only are headed back out on Stonewall’s Old Course for semifinal matches, but they’ve also added at least another year to their exemptions for future Mid-Amateurs.
All four semifinalists are exempt from qualifying for the 2017 championship at the Capital City Club in Atlanta, Ga., and the 2018 competition at Charlotte (N.C.) Country Club.
The two finalists will be exempt into next year’s U.S. Amateur Championship at Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, Calif., as well as exemptions out of local qualifying for the 2017 U.S. Open Championship at Erin Hills. The runner-up also receives a three-year Mid-Amateur exemption. The champion receives a 10-year Mid-Amateur exemption as well as a likely invitation into the 2017 Masters.
Here are the quarterfinal results:
