|In 2004 the PGA honored the legacy of R. Jay Sigel, the top amateur golfer ever born and raised in Pennsylvania. Sigel’s amateur credentials are remarkable. He was a two-time U.S. Amateur Champion, a three-time U.S. Middle-Amateur Champion and a representative of the U.S. on the Walker Cup team nine times, including twice as captain in 1983 and 1985. He was an 11-time Pennsylvania Amateur Champion, a four-time Pennsylvania State Open Champion and a two-time Pennsylvania Junior Champion.|
|"The Sigel" will host 72 of the best players that the Commonwealth has to offer. The event will begin with two 18-hole stroke play rounds with the top 16 players advancing to match play.|
Day One ~ Two 18-hole stipulated rounds to qualify for match play
Day Two ~ Round of 16 Matches ~ a.m.
Day Two ~ Quarterfinal Matches ~ p.m.
Day Three ~ Semifinal Matches ~ a.m.
Day Three ~ Final Matches ~ p.m
|"The Sigel" is open to any male amateur golfer who is a member of a club belonging to the Pennsylvania Golf Association or an individual member of the Pennsylvania Golf Association with a handicap index of 7.4 or lower. If the positions are not filled by players whom have accumulated points in the year prior, then the entries will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis.

|The field will consist of the top 66 players on the previous year’s William C. Fownes, Jr., Amateur Player of the Year standings, champions of the event from the past five years, and the current club champion of the host site. In the unlikely event of full subscription of all guaranteed spots, those tied for the last position on the POY standings will be accepted based on time of entry. The 2018 POY standings resulted in an 11-way tie for the 64th position. If the event is full, those players will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis according to time of entry.|
