When tickets went on sale for the Stowe Mountain Lodge Classic, Tournament Director Kyle Ross noticed an interesting trend.
Barely an hour after tickets became available, Ross noticed an increasing amount of tickets being purchased from the Orlando-based area.
The athlete those spectators are traveling over 1,000 miles to see: professional tennis player and former Palm Coast resident Reilly Opelka. “We have people from the Orlando-base area buying tickets to travel up here to specifically see him,” said Ross, who also handles marketing and public relations for Grand Slam Tennis Tours. “He’s a 19-year-old who can move tickets to events all the way across the country.”
