The event takes place on the Jack Nicklaus-designed Sunset Course at The Club at Las Campanas in Santa Fe, N.M., Sept. 26 – 28.

New Jersey begins play Sept. 26, paired with players from Maryland and California. Sim tees off at 1:20 p.m., followed by Maertz at 1:30 p.m. and Fleming at 1:40 p.m.

On Aug. 29 at New York’s Knollwood, Fleming and Maertz teamed to win the first alternate spot into the 2018 U.S. Four-Ball Championship to be contested April 28-May 2 in Tarzana, California.
