PGA Championship Ticket Prices Hit 4-Year Lows Amid Month Change
This year’s PGA Championship ticket prices have reached its lowest in the past four years.
According to TicketIQ, the average price of tickets on the secondary market were listed at $94. This is the cheapest single-day priced ticket since 2015 when tickets dropped to an average of $70, and were the second-cheapest priced tickets since 2012.
The prices could have plummeted for a number of reasons, including the 60 degree temperatures with the possibility of rain, Ticket IQ founder Jesse Lawrence said in a blog post. Additionally, Lawrence noted that it may be difficult for families to attend the Championship since the tour has shifted from its traditional date in August too May.
“As a result of all those factors, there’s an opportunity to see Tiger and the rest of the field for prices [that] are historically cheap and well below the $110 face price,” Lawrence wrote.
The Championship kicked-off yesterday and will run through Sunday. Conducted by the Professional Golfers’ Association of America, the event is one of the four major championships in professional golf. The 43-year-old golf star Tiger Woods played yesterday at Bethpage Black, the same course he played during the 2002 U.S. Open and won; Woods has been crowned the champion of the past four PGA Championships. This year’s purse is $11 million.
Tickets to the event this weekend are still available via Ticket Club.
