Disclaimer: I'm really not a big golf fan. The game moves too slowly, and I had some bad experiences playing when I was younger that's turned me off to the game. But I have to admit that I might sort of consider attending a golf event for free. Free sports are cool, right?â†µ
Now, I and many others will actually get that chance. Apparently, the PGA Tour is allowing people to just walk in and attend the Senior Players Championship, held just outside of D.C. this October, for free.
The PGA Tour announced Monday that tickets are on the house for all spectators during the entire week at this year's final major on the Champions Tour.â†µ
The Senior Players Championship will be held Oct. 7-10 at the newly renovated TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm in the suburbs of Washington, D.C.â†µ
This is a big deal because it's the first modern major tournament on any level to allow spectators to watch for free. Apparently, the tournament got so much support from corporate sponsors that they can afford to do free admission. Good for them, and good for me, apparently. Maybe I'll actually watch golf after all.â†µ
