CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Get your tickets fast, golf fans. Tiger Woods will play at this summer's Greenbrier Classic.
Greenbrier owner Jim Justice confirmed Monday the golf star will appear at the White Sulphur Springs tournament, set for July 2-8.
Justice said the resort likely would stop selling tickets if sales increase more than 10 percent over last year's turnout.
"At most events Tiger goes to, their attendance jumps over 30 percent," he said.
The Greenbrier drew about 217,000 spectators last year. More than 100,000 more people bought tickets for the tournament's concert series.
Justice said The Greenbrier has managed traffic well during previous tournaments, thanks to the help from State Police, the Greenbrier County Sheriff's Department and White Sulphur Springs police. He said the resort could not handle a dramatic increase, however.
"It can't be an unlimited number," tournament organizer Tom McNeely said. "You can only accommodate so many bodies."
McNeely said the event's security procedures also would be changed to accommodate a star of Woods' stature. Greenbrier Classic organizers will meet with PGA Tour officials in coming months to discuss changes.
"When Tiger comes to an event, it changes the entire security and everything. It's a complete different level of a lot of different things," Justice said.
Spectators likely won't notice, however.
"It will probably be virtually invisible. Frankly, we have a really significant security effort already," he said.
Justice and McNeely said they learned Woods would appear at The Greenbrier Classic on Monday morning.
