Like many lottery systems for golf events, those interested in tickets to the 2020 Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits were asked to sign up for the chance to buy tickets. If you qualified, you were sent an access code to be used Wednesday.

But that didn't work as planned.

Twitter exploded with people sharing screenshots of being placed in "line" at 9 a.m., having access codes no longer work and being kicked to the end of the line.

Lottery systems exist for major golf tournaments such as the Masters, the U.S. Open, the PGA Championship and The Open Championship, often referred to as the British Open.

The Ryder Cup will come to Whistling Straits in Kohler from Sept. 22 to 27, 2020. Those looking for tickets outside of Wednesday's lottery can find them being sold on third-party ticket sales sites.
