Why is official important?

Per PGA Tour rules, an event must go 54 holes to be official. If not, prize money and FedEx Cup points will be awarded, but it will not count as an official win. It must go 54 holes for the winner to be invited to The Players, the PGA Championship, the 2017 Masters and Tournament of Champions.

Ticket talk and concessions

There will be no admission charge for patrons Monday. The main concession stand near the clubhouse will be open, but The Champions Club, Acme Oyster House and 19th Hole will be closed.
