OMalley has joined New Zealanders Michael Campbell and Greg Turner as boycotters of the event, which has seen weeklong ticket prices raise from $20.50 to slightly over $200 this year due to the appearance of the worlds No. 1 player.
While its great that Tiger is playing, its taking the average spectator out of the equation, OMalley told the Associated Press.
I support the stance of Michael, Greg and the others and if the organizers dont back down on the price of tickets, I and a lot of Australians wont play either.
Replied Australasian PGA Tour spokesman Julian Buckmaster: Its an obvious concern to the tour that the players are considering such drastic action, but really, its out of our hands.
