Gates will open at 10 a.m. all three days of tournament play in advance of the 1:15 p.m. shotgun start, so fans can enjoy and take part in the many activities onsite. Grounds passes provide an opportunity to walk the course, watch the tournament from select viewing platforms and grant entry to the interactive Fan Village.
