HARTFORD, Conn. – The PGA Tour isn’t allowing tournaments to hand out free tickets this year because of a limited number of fans being allowed on the premises due to the COVID-19 pandemic. So tournaments have to search for local companies to provide tickets for special personnel.
Stanley Black & Decker and Trinity Health of New England have become sponsors for one-day grounds tickets to special areas on the 17th and 18th holes during the Travelers Championship June 23-27 at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell. A limited number of complimentary one-day grounds tickets will be available to active, guard, reserve and retired military service members responders and kids and must be purchased by June 16 at www.travelerschampionship.com.
Trinity Health Of New England will be providing tickets to active, guard, reserve and retired military service members, along with United States veterans. Ticketed adults can access a one-day grounds ticket for a child aged 15 or under thanks to Stanley Black & Decker. First responders and health care industry workers can also receive a one-day grounds ticket.
The special, limited ticket programs will be available when all tickets go on sale on May 25 at 10 a.m. at TravelersChampionship.com. To secure a ticket through these programs, individuals must register in advance no later than June 16. After successfully completing an online form, users will be given a coupon code that can be redeemed through Ticketmaster.
“We’re pleased to be able to offer these unique ticket programs through our partners at Trinity Health Of New England and Stanley Black & Decker,” tournament director Nathan Grube said in a release. “Their financial support enables us to generate funds for charity while also recognizing the efforts of so many different individuals who put others before their own needs. We greatly appreciate the commitment from these two organizations who are making this all possible.”
