I have 2 Tickets for Sat or Sunday for BMW Championship Golf Tourney. Need to swap for 2 friday tickets, local (St. Louis area only).

The BMW Championship is a huge event for the golf world; however, it only gets secondary coverage in the local media. If St. Louis wants a regular PGA event, they need to show the world they are not just a baseball town.

Maybe so Anon 9:31, but the coverage I saw in the Saturday Post-Dispatch looked fairly comprehensive to this non-local observer.
