Only 25,000 spectator tickets per day, or about 8,000 fewer than the daily maximum for the 2012 U.S. Open at the Olympic Club, are being sold for the Open at Merion. More than 230,000 people attended this year's U.S. Open, the 26th consecutive sellout of the championship.
Grounds tickets are available for the three practice-round days on June 10, 11, and 12. Prices start at $50 for the daily tickets.
There is a four-ticket limit per day on purchases. All tickets include complimentary parking and shuttle transportation to and from the entrance for the championship.
Junior tickets are available at Merion, either at will-call or at the admission gate. Juniors ages 12 and younger will be admitted free when accompanied by an adult ticket-holder, with a limit of two per ticket-holder.
Tickets for juniors ages 13 to 17 can be purchased for $15 for practice rounds and $35 for championship rounds.
In addition, the USGA said active military personnel can pick up complimentary grounds tickets for practice-round days at any will-call location, while retired military personnel can buy grounds tickets for practice rounds at will-call for $25 per ticket.
