The police state is coming! (said only slightly sarcastically)
Among the biggest changes expected at the Memorial is tracking the whereabouts of fans. While there will be fewer spectators allowed on tournament grounds — ticket sales have purposefully been slowed to keep from over-populating — each spectator badge (and the badges of tournament staff/volunteers) will have within it an RFID tag. “At any time we can know, around the golf course, how many people are collecting in a certain area,” Sullivan said.
I’m not so sure I’m down with that. There are less personally identifying ways to “tell how many people are in a certain area,” especially when you have an army of staff/volunteers/etc.
