source:  Golf isn’t cheap, and tickets to this year’s U.S. Open at Merion are going to prove doubly — in some cases even triply — expensive on the secondary market.

Tickets to the tournament rounds have been sold out for a long time and were bought up in short order given the restrictions the USGA has placed on the number of fans allowed on the course.
