By buying early you can save on a weekly ticket for the 2007 Open Championship at Carnoustie.

Until January 31, a season ticket for the eight days of practice and Championship play can be purchased for £150, a saving of nearly 50% on the cost of daily tickets. After January, the season ticket cost will be £170 and from May 1 it will be £190.

?We have held ticket prices at 2006 levels to encourage as many spectators as possible along to Carnoustie,? said director of Championships David Hill.

A daily ticket costs £50 for each of the four days of the Championship, with concessions available and juveniles under the age of 16 admitted free of charge if accompanied by a responsible adult on the day or by prior application.
