Golf fans attending the PGA Championship won’t get any kind of relief from Joe Biden’s disastrous economic policies that have resulted in historic levels of inflation, highlighted by record gas prices.

For instance, want a cold Michelob ULTRA as you stand in the hot Oklahoma sun? That’ll cost you 18 bucks.

Want a to-go cheeseburger that’s served in tin foil? That’ll be $14! How about a chicken Caesar salad with a plastic fork? Pony up another 16 bucks!

To review: a cheeseburger, salad and one beer will come to $50.

According to the PGA, though, the pricing is “sort of” comparable to what spectators would pay at stadium events.

“The pricing of the product is sort of comparable to stadium events. We’re comfortable with where we are, and we hope spectators will come out and have a great time and a great experience,” said Kerry Haigh, Chief Championships Officer of the PGA of America.

Seth Waugh, the PGA’s CEO, defended the pricing with a word salad of corporate-speak.

“It’s a new model for us, right, so at the end of it we’ll go back and, like we always do, try to figure out if it worked or didn’t work and what we can do better and raise the bar.”
