The format was changed for 1912, the main consisting of 5 foursomes matches rather than 9 singles.When the event was revived in 1922 the format was changed.It was therefore decided to hold the England–Scotland match at a different time and on a different venue, being played at Royal Liverpool in August.In addition it was decided to play a match between England and Ireland on the day before.At the 2015 championship, Stanford junior and No.2 world-ranked amateur Maverick Mc Nealy set a championship record for low round during stroke play qualifying with a 7-under 65.The 65 was a low for any NCGA event held at Spyglass Hill.Over 300 players attempt to qualify for the championship each year and the event is open to anyone with a handicap index of 5.4 or less.
On the previous occasions that it has been held there, there were far fewer Scottish entries than normal and as a consequence the Scottish was not fully representative.
The 1902 match had teams of 10, who played singles matches over 36 holes.
All 36 holes were played and the overall result was decided by holes won.
Varying formats have been used over the 106 years of competition but today the tournament is 36 holes of stroke-play qualifying, followed by a 32-person seeded match play bracket.
The one-day final match is a 36-hole test of stamina and concentration after a week of golf at Spyglass Hill.
