The State Team Championships grew out of the celebration of the USGA Centennial in 1995 and was fashioned after the biennial World Amateur Team Championships. Each state is invited to send its three best players. State associations are given the option to choose their teams by any method, with one restriction: college players are ineligible because of NCAA bylaws. Some states use a point system to select a team. Others use the top finishers in their state championships or conduct qualifying tournaments. A few states employ a selection committee to determine team members. Just as in the World Amateur Team Championships, the State Team Championships format mean that only the best two scores of each state's three players are counted in each of three days. The inaugural State Team Championships proved to be such a popular competition that the decision was made to conduct the championships every two years.

Eighteen holes of stroke play are scheduled for Sept. 19-21 (Wednesday-Friday) with lowest two of the three individual scores counting as the team's score for the round. The team with the lowest aggregate score through 54 holes is the champion. Fifty-two teams - all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico - are entered in the tournament.

The championship is open to male amateur golfers as selected by each state golf association or administrative body. At present, collegiate players are not eligible to compete in this championship. The NCAA rules state that a player may only play in an international team competition when that team is sponsored by the national governing body, such as the Curtis Cup Match (female), Walker Cup Match (male) or the World Amateur Team Championships. Any infraction of that rule means the collegiate player may be declared ineligible for the remainder of the season and the following season.

This will be the 56th USGA championship held in New Jersey and first Men's State Team Championship. Galloway National is one of three New Jersey courses hosting USGA competitions in 2012. Neshanic Valley Golf Course in Neshanic Station hosted the Women's Amateur Public Links in June and Mountain Ridge Country Club in West Caldwell will host the USGA Senior Amateur at the end of September.

Kansas' Bryan Norton, Charlie Stevens and Tyler Shelton posted a three-under-par total of 423 to defeat Rhode Island, North Carolina and Florida by four shots to capture the 2010 title. Played at Mayacama Golf Club in Santa Rosa, California, Norton turned in a 3-under 68 on the last day, coupled with Stevens' and Shelton's 74, which proved to be enough to win the championship. Norton also earned medalist honors, edging Scott Shingler of Virginia by one shot. Norton had been a USGA runner-up twice - once as an individual at the 2003 U.S. Mid-Amateur and at this event in 2009. Zac Burton, Jack Courington and Kit Grove will defend the title this year for Kansas.

The state of Texas became the first three-time winner and first back-to-back victor in 2007. Led by Trip Kuehne's final round 67, Texas defeated Georgia by one shot. Trailing second-round leader Alabama by two, Texas received scores of 67 by Kuehne and 72 by Terrence Miskell to finish the championship with a 422 total, the same number they scored in 2005. Jonathan Mathias was the third player for Texas, but his final round 75 did not count toward the final tally. Alan Bratton of Oklahoma, which finished tied for sixth, was the medalist with a 207 total. Kuehne was a member of the victorious 2007 Walker Cup team and later that year captured the U.S. Mid-Amateur.

Miskell posted three straight sub-par rounds to lead the state of Texas to the title in 2005 at Berkeley Hall's South Course in South Carolina. Texas, who joined Minnesota as two-time champions, won by four shots over Alabama and seven over 2003 winner Tennessee. Miskell's three-day total of 208 was the low individual scorer for the championship. Alan Hill and Steve Galko joined Miskell on the winning team.

The 2003 championship was captured by Tennessee, as the team of Danny Green, Tim Jackson and Brandt Snedeker posted a four-shot win over teams from California and North Carolina. Trailing by three shots at Charles River Country Club in Newton Centre, Massachusetts on the final day, Green carded a 3-under 67 while Jackson added a 70 and Snedeker a 71, going from three down to Massachusetts to a four-stroke winning margin. Snedeker has since captured three PGA Tour titles and will play for the United States team at the 2012 Ryder Cup.
