    WARNING: I tried to purchase tickets several months ago for this event and Golf Canada/Ticketmaster refused to provide them. Why, you ask? They do not allow paper tickets as an option - period! The ONLY method of delivery for tickets to this event is directly to an internet-enabled cell phone, which you then must bring to the event to be scanned in order to get in. First time I have ever seen this (and I go to a LOT of concerts every year), and they decide to do this for a golf tournament? Seriously? How stupid is that???

    Yeah, maybe I'm a bit old-fashioned - but I think data charges by cell-phone companies are stupidly expensive for what you get and I choose not to pay them. So I emailed them and they said too bad - if you don't like our new rules then don't go. So I won't be going this year...

    Could you not save them to your phone? I do that with every ticket I buy from Ticketmaster
    I got a fever. And the only prescription is more golf equipment.

    I assumed he was complaining about the ticket policy because he doesn't own a phone but I wonder if you could print out a paper copy and the ticket takers could scan that ?

    I know TD place is now “paperless”. Tickets (season and otherwise) are only available as a download to your device. I do not believe that there is a way to print a ticket any more. Cashless as well.

    I assumed he had a phone and just didn't pay data charges. Anyways, you can download them to apple wallet or google pay - I use apple wallet and they are simple tickets with a QR code. No reason why you couldn't take a screen grab of that as well and save it as a photo if data was a concern, which it shouldn't be (at least for Apple).

    I too use apple wallet. Works great. I am not sure about the picture - that might work. I do know that they do not accept paper tickets printed. Here from their website:

    “ 1. Do not print out your digital ticket as printed digital tickets will not be accepted at the gate.”

    Not sure why.

    Times are changing quickly. I sell at a couple of farmers markets on week-ends and accept credit cards and debit as well as cash. Probably about a third of my sales this summer have come from people "tapping" their phones.

    That's an unfortunate reason not to go, I hope you have a friend or family member you wish to attend with and they could use their phone screen shot with your ticket info on it. I understand principles are principles though.
