Tiger leaves, and so do fans

February 27, 2009

It is not surprising, of course, but once Tiger Woods made his exit from the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship so did a healthy percentage of fans. Attendance on Friday was down 21 percent from Thursday (11,130 from 14,120).

Moreover, attendance was up over the same day a year ago every day until Friday, when it was off more than 1,300 from third-round play a year ago.
