Q: For the Champions Cup, they are only selling around 400 tickets per day, due to limitations on the number of spectators that can fit in and around the WR Jackson course. It looks like both weekend days are going to sell out, and all the VIP tickets sold out a while ago.

Is this enough tickets for a major championship? If not, what should the PDGA do to make it possible for more spectators to attend?

– Jack F.

A: We have to consider these questions from a variety of angles: short term spectator goals, long term spectator goals, the capacity of wooded courses, and how to develop courses in the future. Let’s dig in.
