Indianapolis to become regular PGA Tour stop?

Indianapolis golf fans are determined to make this year's BMW Championship the biggest ever.

Organizers say ticket sales for the city's biggest men's golf tournament since the 1991 PGA Championship could approach 150,000, making it one of the tour's most attended non-majors this season.

"I think what it does is it shows how supportive Indianapolis can be when you have special events coming to town for our event or maybe another major somewhere down the road," said Vince Pellegrino, the Western Golf Association's vice president of tournaments. "It's certainly been impressive."

While organizers have already announced the tourney will return to Chicago in 2013 and 2015, with Denver hosting it in 2014, people in Indy are hoping that their fervent response will be heard by the Tour.

Ideally, the fanatical golf fans in the city would hope to push the city into the BMW rotation or even get tour officials to give Indianapolis the opportunity to fill a hole on a future schedule.

"At the present time, we don't have any openings," PGA Tour spokesman Ty Votaw said Tuesday.

"But certainly, Indy's record makes it a market that we would always be interested in at looking at if there was an open spot. A significant number of our events are signed through post-2014."
