In this week’s golf report for Crain’s Chicago Business, I have a post on while it may be U.S. Open week, the time has arrived to start thinking about what you need to do if you want to be on the grounds at Medinah Country Club for the 2012 Ryder Cup.
Sign-up for the ticket lottery begins Monday. Applications will be accepted through mid-September. The official random draw will take place shortly thereafter.
