One of the many traditions at the Masters each year is the incredibly reasonable concession prices. The organizers of the PGA Championship are taking a slightly different approach.

Anyone who wants to drink and eat at the PGA Championship at Southern Hills Country Club in Oklahoma this week may have to take out a second mortgage. A single beer or alcoholic beverage at the event costs around $20. Yes, for one. Check out some of these insane prices:

Charging $18 for a Michelob Ultra should be illegal. People are going to pay it, of course, but there will be a lot of complaining. PGA superstar Justin Thomas thinks there should be. He caught wind of the prices and cracked a joke about them on Instagram.

We have seen some price increases at the Masters over the years, but a beer probably won’t cost $18 at Augusta National until the year 2085 — at the earliest. Those beers in Tulsa better be pretty big.
