The Pennsylvania court announced the indictment of Fryer in a total of 15 illegal cases on August 17. The document alleges that Fryer abused his position as assistant director at the USGA to smuggle more than 23,000 tickets to the US Open worth $3.4 million from 2013-2019. During the seven tournaments during this period, Fryer “collected” goods by sending fake e-mails to buyers and then selling them on the black market. After that, the traders “kickback” Fryer more than a million USD in cash and PayPal e-wallet.

Fryer could receive a compound sentence of up to 300 years in prison, a $3.75 million fine, three years of probation, and refund to the USGA of all proceeds from piracy.

The USGA knew in advance that the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) launched a campaign to dismantle the illegal ticket line at the main major.

“A few months ago, USGA received news that the FBI was investigating a case of embezzlement related to US Open tickets in which the perpetrator was a former employee and we were the victim. From the 2020 period, USGA has applied a new ticketing platform with a process We handle purchase requests more strictly and with greater security to avoid similar illegal actions in the future. We waive comment on personnel issues and confirm Rob Fryer is no longer working at the agency,” the office said. copy from the USGA explaining the ex-employee’s indictment.

USGA was founded in late 1894, with Royal & Ancient (R&A) established in 1754 to manage and develop world golf. Every year, the USGA organizes 14 tournaments, including both men’s and women’s US Open.

The men’s prize is considered a “golden egg” for the USGA when it accounts for 75% of annual revenue, bringing in $165 million in 2019 alone. They did not accept field audiences in the 2020 tournament due to Covid-19, and the last period in June welcomed the public but did not announce revenue.
