Tiger Woods by Nobumasa

A PGA golf tournament was held for the first time in Japan. This tournament was sponsored by Zozo. The place was Narashino Country Club near Narita International Airport. About 60 players from the PGA and 10 players form Japan participated in the tourney. Tiger Woods won and got 1.75 million dollars. He won his 82nd PGA tour title at this tournament and equalled the record set by Sam Snead in 1965. Just for reference, Jack Nicklaus won 73 PGA titles. Tiger Woods is 43 years old and Jack Nicklaus is 79 years old. 
My wife wanted to attend the tournament. I was surprised that the most expensive ticket was 600,000 yen. Guests who buy the most expensive tickets can relax in a fully air-conditioned room and enjoy French food prepared by top chefs. The cheapest ticket was 12,000 yen. Unfortunately they were all sold out. Ordinarily tickets in Japan are 12,000 yen.
