Yesterday, the United States Golf Association (USGA) announced that the U.S. Senior Open will be back this summer from July 8th through the 11th to a limited audience. Last year's Open was cancelled due to the COVID-19 global pandemic.
"We are pleased to be able to provide a limited number of fans the opportunity to witness the world’s best senior golfers while maintaining health and safety for all involved,” said Hank Thompson, senior director of the U.S. Senior Open Championship for the USGA. “We continue to be committed to providing a safe environment during these challenging times for all attendees, including players, caddies, fans, volunteers, vendors, and staff.”
The USGA has limited the audience gallery to 7,000 tickets which will be available for purchase on each day of the Open. For comparison, the 2013 U.S. Senior Open allotted 30,000 daily tickets. In addition, there will be no grandstands so that people can social distance and face coverings will be a requirement.
Tickets go on sale later this week. For more information please visit the official website.
