THE Tiger Woods factor is being touted by organisers of the Australian Masters golf with the announcement today that daily passes to the second round Friday session of the event have sold out.
Premium grandstand seating on the 18th hole have also sold out on every day of the tournament but there are still some daily passes available for the all important Sunday final round.
Vice President, Director of Golf IMG Australia, David Rollo said that interest in the 2009 event has surpassed expectations.
“Our vision to create an iconic sporting event is now being realised and we are delighted that sporting fans from across Australia and overseas are gathering to see the world’s greatest golfers play at Kingston Heath on the famed Melbourne sandbelt,” Rollo said.
“Less than 10% of daily passes for Sunday are still available and given the demand to date we would encourage fans to purchase tickets now to avoid disappointment,” Rollo said.
Daily tickets are still available for Thursday and Saturday along with only 500 season passes providing access to each day of the tournament and practice days.
Travel packages through the official travel agency, Event Travel Office, continue to sell strongly and fans looking to purchase should call 1300 300 756 or visit www.australianmasters.com.au
The 2009 Australian Masters will be held at Kingston Heath Golf Club from 12 – 15 November.
