Here is what Tiger Woods is doing to 2014 US Open tickets
Tiger Woods isn't playing but his presence is still felt at Pinehurst on the secondary ticket market.
Tiger Wood is probably sitting on his couch in Florida (we think) but his presence (or lack of) is still being felt in and around Pinehurst No. 2.
The US Open is sold out for the 28th straight time which means you'll have to turn to the secondary ticket market if you want to get into the tournament.
What does that have to do with Tiger Woods?
As Darren Rovell of ESPN pointed out, it means this year is a good year to go.
If you ever wanted to go to the US Open, this might be the year. Avg 4-day pass on StubHub sold for only $421— darren rovell (@darrenrovell) June 12, 2014
I talked to Ashley Kubiszyn of TicketCity and she confirmed this.
"Prices from last year to this year are down 61% overall," she said. In addition, prices from 2011, when Tiger didn’t participate, to 2012 when he did, jumped up 40%."
"It’s pretty astonishing to see the Tiger effect in action but it certainly seems consistent across the major tournaments."
She's right, here's visual evidence as provided by TicketCity:
