The PGA of America, which runs the prestigious event set for May 16-19, announced Wednesday three championship rounds already are sold out: Rounds 2 through 4 (Friday through Sunday). The only championship day with tickets remaining is Thursday’s opening round. A limited ticket inventory also is still available for the practice rounds Monday through Wednesday.
“We expected tickets to move quickly for this Championship, and were blown away by the unprecedented response. It’s a true testament to the excitement and support we’re seeing both locally and nationally for the PGA Championship’s return to Valhalla,” Ryan Ogle, championship director for the 106th PGA Championship, said in a statement.
The 2024 PGA Championship will be the fourth time Valhalla has hosted the event. It previously was the championship venue in 1996 (won by Mark Brooks in a playoff over Kentucky native Kenny Perry), 2000 (won by Tiger Woods in a playoff over Bob May) and 2014 (won by Rory McIlroy, the most recent of his four major titles).
Valhalla also was the site of the 2008 Ryder Cup, when Team USA topped Team Europe 16 ½ to 11 ½. The course was designed by golf legend Jack Nicklaus and was owned for decades by the PGA before being sold in 2022 to a group of Louisville investors.
All remaining tickets for the 2024 event are available at https://www.pgachampionship.com/tickets.
