Tickets sell out for 2017 Dell match play event


When the 64 top-ranked golfers in the world return to Austin in two months, they will play to a second straight sellout crowd.

Organizers of the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play event announced they have cut off ticket sales and are starting a waiting list. Austin Country Club, which made a successful debut as the tournament’s host in 2016, will be the site for the 2017 event March 22-26.

“We have sold a total of 10,000 daily spectator passes, which will give us the best balance of buzz and excitement at the event while maximizing the best possible experience for our fans,” said Chris Reimer, PGA Tour director of communications. “This matches our efforts from last year.”

The waiting list for tickets can be found at www.dellmatchplay.com. Youngsters 18 and under will be admitted free when accompanied by a ticketed adult (one youth per ticketed adult).

Limited hospitality opportunities remain available. For more information, call the tournament office at (512) 949-5885.

Jason Day, ranked No. 1 in the world, won the Austin event last year, beating Louis Oosthuizen in the final.

“Everyone attending the 2016 Dell Technologies Match Play raved about the energy in the crowd and the experience on-site, players included,” said Jordan Uppleger, Dell Match Play executive director. “We expect 2017 to be even bigger and better. We’ll be announcing a number of programs and initiatives in the coming months that will showcase the best of the Austin community.”
