Online registration required to be eligible for public sale
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (April 16, 2013) – The PGA of America announced today a new ticketing procedure for the 2014 PGA Championship at Valhalla Golf Club that will give priority to early online registration. Fans can reserve their spot in line for the public ticket sale, which runs from Aug. 12 to Sept. 20.
At a news conference in Louisville, PGA of America officials explained that past PGA Championships at Valhalla in 1996 and 2000 were sellouts, and the 2014 PGA Championship is expected to be no different. The new procedure requires fans to complete a free online registration prior to Aug. 12 in order to be eligible to purchase tickets.
The earlier fans register, the better positioned they will be to purchase the most popular tickets, officials said. If each individual in the PGA database who has supported past PGA of America events at Valhalla were to complete an online registration for the 2014 event, competition for tickets would be in excess of 120,000 people, and tickets would essentially be sold out for the entire week.
PGA officials also announced the introduction of daily grounds tickets, which allows spectators to choose a single day of play instead of purchasing a full, weeklong pass. This is the first time daily tickets have been offered at a PGA Championship in the Louisville market.
Full details on the early registration process are available at www.2014PGA.com. Registration takes a few moments, and there is no obligation to purchase tickets by completing the online form. Ticket pricing will be announced prior to the first day of the public sale in August.
