OMalley the Latest to Speak out Against Ticket Pricing Increases


Peter OAustralian Peter OMalley is the latest to speak out against the dramatic increase of ticket pricing for the Tiger Woods-featured New Zealand Open.
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.
