How difficult is it to get tickets for this event? Any advise for first time attendee?

Just added myself to waiting list of volunteers in case I can't get a ticket but would really like to get at least 2 tixs.

I was wondering if they would even be sponsoring this event again . . . I expected it to go away . . .

Ani--not that easy to go away that quickly. I think it would look preeeeetty bad. Maybe next year. In fact most of the prime opps. for volun. were taken and filled.

Well, up until 3 or 4 weeks ago, they were offering me my renewal for grounds passes (which is when the deadline was), so I think it will still happen...

just my .02

Doubtless, you and John are right. I would think the PGA has its schedules set up waaaaay in advance. As an eventuality . . . perhaps the sponsor will change and it will still be held here . . . I mean - who puts up the $$$ for the purse on these things???? I just assumed the majority of that money had to be from the sponsor. It can't be all entry fees . . . I don't know how it works, hence my ignorance.

From what I hear from a marshall at the event, this year is a go, locked in, but next year is not. The in the know crowd is hoping to pull out a rabbit from the hat and keep the exceptional tournament as close to "as is" is possible, but it is not a sure thing, post 2009.

John, too bad you don't know any Wachovia employees. They could have gotten you tickets at a discount.
