The United States Golf Association (USGA) today announced that all championship-round tickets (Thursday through Sunday, June 18-21) for the 2015 U.S. Open Championship at Chambers Bay in University Place, Wash., have sold out. This marks the 28th consecutive sellout, dating to the 1988 U.S. Open.
Limited practice-round tickets for Monday through Wednesday, June 15-17, are still available but are expected to sell quickly. The 115th U.S. Open marks the first time that the national championship has been conducted in the Pacific Northwest.
The tremendous response we have received for our ticket sales reaffirms our decision to bring the U.S. Open to Chambers Bay and the Pacific Northwest, said Thomas J. OToole Jr., USGA president. We appreciate the support of golf fans in the region, while we look forward to sharing a memorable experience and a historic championship with all in attendance.
