The People’s Open was about to make a big mistake. Thursday, most of the players never got out and Tiger only played 6 and 3/4ths of a hole. The rain came and the fans were sent home. Originally, they were going to be sent home with a pat on the back and "Thanks for coming. Sorry, it didn’t work out".
So there were parents that bought Thursday tickets, parked their car, took the shuttle, and probably bought at least a program and they weren’t going to get to see much more than a handful of shots from very few of the stars. Sorry kids and we’re sold out , so hopefully we’ll be back in 5 or 10 years.
There was an uproar, so today the USGA reversed their stance and is now offering entry on Monday, if it gets that far, or half your ticket back. Not the perfect solution, but at least a better attempt. I applaud the Golf Association for reconsidering. Hopefully, there will be at least a playoff on Monday for everyone to get another chance. In these economic times, it’s important that fans get what they paid for.
