Finally! Twilight Rates Coming To A Major


Whether due to golfers being morning people, or the days at major championships just going on too long, it’s become a strange late-day sight to see sparse crowds.

The Masters and U.S. Open, where tickets are usually in high demand, have always seemed the best option for a twilight ticket, but it’s The Open striking first. This new £25 option for those arriving to watch golf from 4 pm to dark certainly helps make the high price of the standard ticket look more palatable and probably will appeal to a younger crowd a Open venues closer to large cities.

Phil Casey reports on this and the reduction in price for a normal ticket purchased in advance (Americans are often shocked to learn you can buy a ticket at the door for The Open, even at St. Andrews).
