NOTES:
In 1981, the USGA inaugurated its first new championship in 19 years, the U.S. Mid-Amateur. The Mid-Amateur, for amateur golfers of at least 25 years of age, provides a formal national championship for the post-college amateur, for whom the game is truly an avocation. Before the arrival of the Mid-Amateur, the post-college player could compete in the Amateur Championship, sometimes successfully, but these older amateurs faced greater odds. While they fit their golf around their work and families, they were most often competing against college golfers, for whom the game is close to a full-time activity. High profile past winners of this event are: Jay Sigel (1983, 1985, 1987), Jim Holtgrieve (1981), David Eger (1988), Jerry Courville (1995) and John "Spider" Miller (1996, 1998). The USGA accepted 3,810 entries for the 2012 championship. The record of 5,271 entries was set in 1997.

The starting field of 264 golfers will be cut after 36 holes to 64 players, after which six rounds of match play are contested to determine the champion.

The 2012 U.S. Mid-Amateur will be the second USGA championship conducted at Conway Farms Golf Club. The club previously hosted the 1998 Junior Amateur, in which James Oh defeated current PGA Tour player Aaron Baddeley for the championship.

In addition, the U.S. Mid-Amateur will be the 59th USGA championship held in the state of Illinois. The most recent USGA championship held in the state was the 2011 U.S. Girls' Junior at Olympia Fields Country Club, won by Ariya Jutanugarn. This will be the second U.S. Mid-Amateur in Illinois, following Knollwood Club in 1982. Knollwood Club, which will serve as the companion course for this championship, is located approximately five miles from Conway Farms.

Last year, Randal Lewis earned his first USGA Championship by defeating Kenny Cook, 3 & 2, in the 36-hole final. With the victory, Lewis, 54, became the oldest winner ever at this championship. Lewis beat defending champion and three-time winner Nathan Smith to reach the finals at Shadow Hawk Golf Club. Lewis was the runner-up at this event in 1996, losing to John "Spider" Miller in the final.

In 2010, Smith became just the second player to successfully defend a U.S. Mid-Amateur title by defeating Tim Hogarth, 7 and 5, at Atlantic Golf Club in Bridgehampton, N.Y. James Stuart also claimed consecutive Mid-Amateur championships in 1990 and 1991. Smith also captured his third Mid-Amateur title overall, joining fellow Pennsylvanian Jay Sigel (1983, 1985 and 1987) as the only golfers with three U.S. Mid-Amateur victories. Smith claimed his first Mid-Amateur title in 2003.

Trip Kuehne hammered Dan Whitaker in the final of 2007, 9 & 7, to win at Bandon Dunes Golf Resort. This was Kuehne's first USGA title after losing to Tiger Woods, 2-up, in the 1994 U.S. Amateur final. Kuehne, whose brother Hank and sister Kelli have won USGA titles, represented the United States three times in the Walker Cup.

Kevin Marsh cruised to a 10-and-9 win over Carlton Forrester in the 2005 championship match. Marsh was 3-up after seven holes and a whopping 10-up after the morning 18. Marsh, a reinstated amateur, closed out the match on the 27th hole with a four-footer for par. Marsh defeated 1997 Mid-Amateur winner Kenny Bakst and the defending champion, Austin Eaton III en route to the title.

In 2003, Nathan Smith became the youngest champion in event history, as he defeated Bryan Norton. Smith, at 25, was four-up as they played the ninth hole when Norton suffered a calf muscle injury which forced him to concede the remainder of the match. The concession was the first time in the history of the USGA that a final match was conceded due to injury or illness.

Prior to 2001, the championship match was 18 holes. In 1983, Sigel became the first golfer in 53 years to win two USGA events in the same year, when he won this event just 32 days after capturing the U.S. Amateur.

The 2013 U.S. Mid-Amateur will be conducted at the Country Club of Birmingham in Birmingham, Alabama.
