National Match Play was born out of a love of sports and of competitions that end up with a National Champion.

John Tim Worden and Matt Crosby founded National Sports Competitions (aka NSC) in 2006. The model was to provide a competition format that started at the local level and advanced to a national level with some dramatic prizes and awards to the eventual national champions.

John and Matt were involved in numerous youth sports teams and leagues. What started as a national youth baseball format morphed into a national golf competition, following USGA approval of the concept.

National Match Play covers golf lodging and some meals at all levels after local qualifying and Regional play (if necessary). The format is continually being enhanced and will include these benefits starting in June 2024.
