KIAWAH ISLAND, SC -- Saturday and Sunday tickets to the Ocean Club, the air-conditioned pavilion located behind the 18th green at The Ocean Course, are sold out for this year's Senior PGA Championship, tournament officials have announced.

All Grounds ticket packages also stilll remain for the Championship which runs May 22-27.
South Carolina native Jay Haas, will defend his title as 2006 Senior PGA Champion against the strongest field in senior golf. Tom Watson, Greg Norman, Gary Player, Hale Irwin, Fuzzy Zoeller, Craig Stadler, Peter Jacobsen, Raymond Floyd and 2007 rookies Nick Price, Mark O'Meara and Fred Funk are among the 156 players eligible to compete for the coveted Alfred S. Bourne Trophy.
"The location and timing of this Championship allow for a most memorable spectator experience," says Roger Warren, President of The PGA of America and Kiawah Island Golf Resort. "Spectators have a unique opportunity to enjoy Major championship golf and beautiful ocean views from one place. When not watching golf, spectators may explore Kiawah Island and greater Charleston -- play golf at area courses, visit beaches, enjoy the Spoleto festival, tour historic homes and plantations, and enjoy fine dining."
A limited number of Daily Tickets for Practice Rounds and Competition Rounds, as well as Weekly Passes for the entire Championship, go on sale Wed., July 12.
Practice Rounds on Tues., May 22, and Wed., May 23, are open to the public. During Practice Rounds, players fine-tune their games, familiarize themselves with The Ocean Course and interact with fans. Only during Practice Round days are spectators permitted to bring cameras and seek autographs.
Competition Rounds begin on Thurs, May 24, and continue to Sun., May 27. After Friday's rounds are completed, the field will be cut to the low 70 scorers and ties. Those competitors that make the cut continue playing on Saturday and Sunday for a chance to win a Major championship title and the winner's share of an approximately $2 million purse.
