tdogg21Whaql1Thanks everyone for the congrats, I am beyond excited for the chance to go. It is only for the practice round on Monday but regardless it will be a joy to set foot on the grounds.
that's when i went and it works out great. you have the whole weekend to get there and hang out and can leave monday night or tuesday to start heading home, so work isn't as big of an issue. plus pretty much all of the players will be there by monday anyway.
How busy was it at the course? Spectator wise.
i didn't think it was busy at all. relatively speaking. if you find out where different guys are, you'll be able to go ahead by a hole or two and get a great, up-close view of them. since it's a practice round, everyone is spread across the course, putting green, driving range, and gift shop. there will be a line to get in, so get there early.
My advice, get there early and see who is on the course or driving range. if there is no one you want to see take the time to walk the course and see all of the holes. then try to find some golfers you want to see and follow them a bit. try to sit at amen corner for a few groups. save the gift shop until after lunch. you're there early in the week, so no fear of them selling out of anything and this way you don't have to carry a bag around all day.
