MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 10: Tickets for the 2012 PGA Grand Slam of Golf are now available for purchase at the Port Royal Golf Course and every ticket buyer will receive two tickets for every one purchased, The PGA of America announced today.

Tickets for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday are $20 for each day.  A weeklong pass for all three days is $50.  A purchase of any day’s ticket will result in a second ticket for that same day at no additional cost.  Weeklong passes are also offered on the two-for-one promotion.

The buy one, get one free promotion is available only for tickets purchased in advance online and at advance ticket locations like Port Royal Golf Course.  This special promotion will not be available for tickets bought after October 21, 2012.
