EVENT NOTE: HOSPITALITY AT THE U.S. SENIOR OPEN
Published July 21, 1998
The U.S. Senior Open will be held this weekend at L.A.'s Riviera Club and four of the 19 hospitality tents available to be leased "remain unsold." In L.A., Jim Hodges reported that the most expensive corporate tents, which sold for $90,000, have all been sold, but "there are a few left" at $60,000. The event is "far from a sellout," and as of Sunday, "about" 50,000 tickets had been sold, "spread out over three practice rounds and four days." A capacity of 25,000 per day has been set (L.A. TIMES, 7/20).
