2014 PGA Championship Friday tickets sold out

LOUISVILLE, KY -- The window of opportunity for being a part of the 2014 PGA Championship is quickly closing, as grounds tickets for Friday's second round have sold out. A limited number of tickets are available for Thursday's first round as well as practice rounds for the Championship, to be held at Louisville's Valhalla Golf Club, Aug. 4-10, 2014.

Ticket sales are the most successful in the event's 96-year history. Saturday and Sunday tickets sold out months ago, along with tickets to the Wanamaker Club.

"To eclipse the all-time PGA Championship sales record and nearly sell out the entire event five months in advance shows how passionate the golf fans are in this community," said Brett Sterba, 2014 PGA Championship Director. "The table is set for a week-long celebration of golf in Louisville and the PGA of America is aiming to deliver a major championship experience to each of our ticket holders."

More than 3,300 volunteers have registered to help throughout the week of the Championship. Less than 200 volunteer spots are still available.
