With this win the Golf Association of Michigan takes back the cup as the Michigan PGA had won the past two years at the Country Club of Lansing and Eagle Eye Golf Club. The Michigan PGA still  holds a 34-8-1 lead in the overall series but the  GAM have won 4 of the last 8 meetings with the win  this year.

The two teams competed in a Ryder Cup like format with six four-ball matches in the morning and 12 singles matches in the afternoon.We would like to thank Cutter & Buck for supplying the uniforms for both teams this year.
