Discounting the Players Championship
The PGA Tour is dropping ticket prices 40 percent, from $75 to $45, for the Players Championship next year in an effort to boost attendance and by extension the tournament's charitable donations. A weekly pass will sell for $145, down from $199 in 2009.
These offers are good only through the end of the year, at which point daily prices go up to $65, still a reduction from 2008, while weekly passes will go to $165.
