Quail Hollow Championship tournament director Kym Hougham said he and his team had a “Plan T” in the event Tiger Woods decided to play next week’s event and so far everything is going according to plan.
Lee Patterson, who runs the Quail Hollow press center, said on Tuesday that he plans to be able to accommodate about 355 total credentials with seating for about 140 journalist. Patterson said he made extra room by moving the interview room into a new 30-by-50 foot tent.
“I did have a few non-traditional media outlets inquire (about credentials),” Patterson wrote in an e-mail. “But with the addition of CBS News, ABC News, CNN, ESPN all the networks are covered.”
Patterson said that he received about 35 additional credential requests after Woods announced he was playing.
