Did You Exchange Your Timeshare for a Week in New York?

If you scheduled New York timeshare this week, you could be on the eighteenth green to see the winning putt at the 2006 US Open

This week the United States Golf Association returns to Winged Foot, hosting the US Open Golf Championship. For only the fifth time since 1929, the prestigious event will be contested on the challenging fairways and greens of the Mamaroneck, New York golf course. To give you an idea just how difficult a US Open at Winged Foot can be, only Fuzzy Zoeller in 1984, claimed his win with a total score below par—267 for four grueling rounds of golf.

So on Sunday afternoon, who will walk away with the trophy and the winner’s share of the 6.2 million dollar purse? It might be Tiger Woods or Phil Mickelson. It might even be 52-year old Jay Haas, who only three weeks ago claimed his first major title at the Senior PGA Championship. And this year’s winner could even be long shot, 15-year old Tadd Fujikawa, (the second youngest qualifier in the event’s history) who claimed the lone entry spot at the sectional qualifier in Hawaii.

But in tiny Mamaroneck, New York, where every hotel and motel room has been sold-out for months in anticipation of this great golfing event, the real winners will be the timeshare owners who planned ahead and exchanged their weeks for New York timeshares.
