INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Ticket sales for Indianapolis' biggest men's golf tournament in more than two decades are better than expected and could help the city land future events.
Tournament organizer Vince Pellegrino says the Western Golf Association has already sold more tickets for this year's BMW Championship than last year and attendance figures for the week could approach 150,000. That would make it one of the most attended non-major events on the PGA Tour.
The event is at the Crooked Stick Golf Club in the first week of September.
Though the PGA schedule is booked through 2014, tour spokesman Ty Votaw says Indy is a host city the governing body would consider if there was an opening on a future schedule.
