I just received notice that I was selected to purchase tickets for the 2020 Ryder Cup in Kohler.

 

Anyone else luck out as well?

I received an email today "Congratulations Bill, you've been selected for the opportunity to purchase tickets"...   .   It states that on 10/14 I will receive an email with an access code.  On 10/16 I enter a "ticket lobby", then an hour later get "added to the virtual line", then "when it's my turn, purchase event tickets".

I cannot recall if I submitted something a while ago adding my name to a ticket lottery - guess I must have.  Anyone else receive this email and plan on going?

Got it too. Thinking a lot might get it but they are doing a lobby system too so need to be early once the system opens up. Good luck.

Everybody I know that entered got it, myself included.  Current plan is buy tickets and go.  They seem pricier than the tickets 4 years ago in MN so probably just one day.

I’m going to try for practice rounds. We’ll see how it goes.

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

I got it as well.... Wondering if the "you've been selected from the random selection process" was more of a marketing scheme. They used this terminology to sound exclusive (like Augusta National) but in reality ALL people were selected to be able to buy tickets.

It’s not but at least it’s a shot, right? [emoji4]

Dad said he was up for making the trip. Shooting for some practice round tickets and we’ll see how it works.

I think you’re right. It’s a bummer that they would solicit requests to purchase tickets then grant permission to all applicants. If that’s the case, they now have a strong database of email and contacts for future direct email programs.

 

I would expect nothing less from the PGA of America🤦🏼‍♂️

I had a feeling this was not all it was cracked up to be; that is I'm one of multitudes receiving the notice.  So after receiving the email, I started looking at places to stay in and around Kohler, WI... umm, I would strongly suggest you research that before buying tickets.  Based on my initial look, I'm likely watching it on TV 🤨.

Having just played there last month, i think it would be an awesome venue to watch the Ryder Cup, and at the same time, it would be horrible to try and navigate that course as a spectator.  If you're not on the fairways, there is basically no good ground to walk on everything else is either dunes or waste bunkers.   I'd try to find a set of bleachers where you could see multiple holes and camp out there.

I’m glad you said that because it really doesn’t look as accommodating as some other prior venues.

One other thing we discussed was do we spend the money to go to the a Ryder cup or do we wait a little and spend the same to actually play it.

I’m leaning towards the latter.

yeah, that would be a tough call.  I mean I know it's going to be a phenomenal scene, you've got he WI fans who are some of the best sports fans in the country, and the team should be stacked with great players.   No doubt some incredible golf, and while I'd love to be there for the atmosphere, I think I'd enjoy it more on TV.   I would possibly consider what I used to do for US Opens, go Wednesday through Friday, then fly home Saturday morning to watch on TV.

I honestly don't think you can't go wrong with either choice you decide on.   It is a bucket list course that if you can swing the chance to play it,  you absolutely should.   It's an experience that may only be exceeded by Augusta and Brandon in the US.   That comes from someone I know who has played every top 100 course in the US multiple times.

I’ve always been one who would rather watch the coverage from my couch. I’m still going to join the auction page but I won’t be nearly as heartbroken knowing that everyone who applied has a shot to get tickets.

Interesting and thanks for the insights.  This sounds much like my experience at Chambers Bay.  Spectator access to a healthy portion of the course is very limiting.  Perhaps that might be improved if they hold another major there, but it wasn't great in 2016 - resulting in overcrowded areas/grandstands. Much as I'd love to attend a Ryder Cup, I think I'll pass on this one 😥.

Yeah, it's a  tough call.   I think it's truly a special place and will be one of the more memorable US hosted Ryder Cups in many years, but yes tough logistics.   I should ammend my statement about walking around.   There are some very well hidden cart paths that run through the Straits course,  they are used for transporting people out for shotgun starts and all.   I'm sure that's what most of the spectator traffic will use for navigating the course, but you literally can not see any of the holes from there, they are on the other side of all the mounds/dunes.   

If I lived closer it would definitely be a tough decision for me not to go.  But I think the viewing on TV will be just as good.

Thought I was special too, but now I think it's more like Ticketmaster's Verified Fan and Code program than an actual lottery.  Either way, I'm in the queue!!  

Was looking at over events that weekend to try to hit too as I'm only going for Saturday tickets.

Wisconsin is away @ Michigan Football but the Cardinals @ Cubs all weekend if your flying into Chicago.
