Due to extreme fire danger and public health concerns, smoking is not permitted except within clearly marked designated smoking areas. Please be considerate with your cigarette butts and place them in the bins provided for your use.
We think that each day of the tournament has something special to offer! PGA TOUR professionals are more amenable to autographs on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of tournament week, as these are practice and Pro-Am days and they are not actively competing. Competition begins on Thursday and continues on Friday, so if you have your heart set on seeing a particular golfer, these are the days you will want to be in attendance. There is a cut after play on Friday to include the lowest scoring 70 players and those tied at that score. Those golfers who make the cut will play on Saturday and Sunday of tournament week. Sunday is the exciting finish with a lively Closing Ceremony following the sink of the last putt. Thursday through Sunday of tournament week features activities that all interest groups can enjoy, so they are all wonderful days to attend.
