Michael Buteau reports that corporate hospitality sales for the U.S. Open at Bethpage are down, but there may be a silver lining for those hoping to buy tickets.
Typically, the USGA withholds between 8,000 and 10,000 weekly tickets for purchase by corporations, Jerris said. As the current allotment of 1,000 tickets is bought by the public, the USGA will likely release more tickets if corporations don’t buy them.
“We’re reserving tickets in anticipation of more corporate sales,” Jerris said. “It’s an ongoing sales effort. We expect by the week of the Open, we’ll be sold out.”
In other words, there should be plenty of tickets available.
But if not, apparently you'll be able to play along with the players during the event in a virtual sense. I'll leave it up to you all to deliver a verdict on this.
