MILWAUKEE, Wis. - The PGA of America, Kohler Co. and Milwaukee Brewers are pleased to announce that "Golf Night at Miller Park" will take place when the Brewers host the Los Angeles Dodgers at 6:10 p.m. CT on Saturday, August 9, at Miller Park.
The game falls just prior to the year-out mark of the 2015 PGA Championship, which is preparing to make its third visit to Whistling Straits in nearby Kohler, Wis., August 10-16, 2015. Fans hoping to attend the 2015 PGA Championship should complete the free and required online ticket pre-registration by August 10 at www.PGAChampionship.com in order to be eligible to purchase tickets during the public sale, which will run August 11-30, 2014.
"Baseball and golf are two of Wisconsin's most beloved games, and we're thrilled to celebrate 'Golf Night at Miller Park' with the Milwaukee Brewers and the team's great fans as we continue the countdown to Whistling Straits," said 2015 PGA Championship Director Jason Mengel. "We're also very excited to be tracking near record levels of ticket pre-registration for the 2015 PGA Championship, and would encourage everyone to pre-register at www.PGAChampionship.com by the quickly approaching August 10 deadline."
The Milwaukee Brewers assisted the 2015 PGA Championship in kicking off its ticket pre-registration period in late April by hosting defending PGA Champion Jason Dufner at Miller Park. During his visit, Dufner had a little fun with Brewers pitcher Kyle Lohse, who ended up losing a bet to the golfer - watch the video here.
"Golf Night at Miller Park" on August 9 will include a variety of opportunities and activities for fans:
- The first 25,000 adults who enter the stadium will receive a Brewers Coupon book; inside the book will be a coupon with instructions on how to pre-register for 2015 PGA Championship tickets. All Brewers fans who pre-register using the coupon will be entered for a chance to win a pin flag signed by Jason Dufner and Kyle Lohse.
- Prior to the game, fans can participate in contests with the Kohler Golf Academy and receive quick tips and lessons from local Wisconsin PGA Professionals outside Miller Park on the 3rd Base Plaza.
- One lucky fan will be chosen to participate in a putting contest on top of the Brewers dugout and have the chance to win 2015 PGA Championship tickets, as well as a one-night stay at The American Club and golf on one of Kohler's award-winning courses.
Tickets for "Golf Night at Miller Park" may be purchased online at Brewers.com or by calling 414-902-GAME.
