By USGA
May 2, 2011

Far Hills, N.J. – All Daily Grounds and Trophy Club tickets for the Saturday and Sunday rounds of the 2011 U.S. Open Championship at Congressional Country Club have sold out. A limited number of 1895 Club tickets remain for Saturday’s third round, but those are expected to sell out quickly.

For the first time in 14 years, the U.S. Open returns to the Washington, D.C., area, as Graeme McDowell defends the title he won last year at Pebble Beach (Calif.) Golf Links. The U.S. Open has been conducted at Congressional twice previously. In 1964, Ken Venturi overcame record heat on a grueling 36-hole final day to win by four strokes over Tommy Jacobs. In 1997, Ernie Els won his second U.S. Open Championship by one stroke over Colin Montgomerie. 

A limited number of tickets are available for the first and second rounds of the championship (Thursday and Friday, June 16-17). Additionally, there are Daily Grounds, Trophy Club and 1895 Club tickets available for practice rounds on June 13-15. Prices start at $50 for daily practice-round tickets and range up to $370 for 1895 Club tickets on Friday.

Each buyer is permitted to purchase up to four tickets for each day. Tickets include complimentary general parking and shuttle transportation to and from the parking area and the championship entrance. Cameras are permitted on practice-round days only (June 13-15).

Junior tickets will be available for sale on-site at Will Call and at all admission gates during the championship. Juniors, age 12 and younger, will be admitted free of charge any day, when accompanied by an adult ticket holder. Tickets for juniors, age 13 to 17, will be available for purchase at a reduced rate of $15 for practice rounds and $35 for championship rounds. There is a maximum of two junior tickets per one adult ticket holder. Junior tickets permit Trophy Club access only when accompanied by an adult Trophy Club ticket holder. Junior tickets do not permit 1895 Club access.

More than 35,000 spectators are expected to attend each day of the championship. The U.S. Open has sold out for 24 consecutive years.
