U.S. Open golf championship is completely sold out again

For those who don't yet have a ticket for this week's U.S. Open golf championship at the Olympic Club in San Francisco, the best way to see the event will be from your couch. Tickets for the event are completely sold out, according to the United States Golf Association (USGA).

This is the 26th consecutive year that tickets for the U.S. Open have sold out.

"The streak of 26 U.S. Open sellouts began right here at The Olympic Club in 1987," said USGA Executive Director Mike Davis. "We thank all the fans who have turned out over the years to support our national championship, and we welcome those who will join us here this week. It should be a great test of golf."

Tickets for juniors are always available on site at will call and at all admission gates during the championship. Juniors age 12 and younger will be admitted free of charge any day when accompanied by an adult ticket holder.

Tickets for juniors ages 13 to 17 will be available at a reduced rate of $15 for practice rounds and $35 for championship rounds. There is a maximum of two junior tickets per one adult ticket holder.
