The tournament is Oct. 6-9 at CordeValle. Along with getting Woods, the field includes Ernie Els, two-time major champion Angel Cabrera and former British Open champion Louis Oosthuizen.

Butler said some tickets are still available.

"We hope to have 15,000 people a day," he said. "We have an agreement with the county of Santa Clara that we'd have a maximum paid crowd of 15,000 a day."

With hotel rooms being snatched up, the tournament figures to have a much greater economic impact on San Martin, which is located just south of San Jose.

"Fry's is popular in Santa Clara County right now," Butler said.
