Getty Images has announced a multi-year extension as the exclusive commercial photo partner with PGA TOUR, Inc. Getty Images will continue to provide the PGA TOUR, its players, various business partners and the global media access to their collection.
The strategic relationship with the PGA TOUR was first formed in 2005 with WireImage, which Getty Images acquired in early 2007. Getty Images photographers will continue to capture imagery throughout the PGA TOUR season, as well as at select Champions Tour and Nationwide Tour events while Getty Images will curate material from related events including the European Tour, the LPGA, the Masters at Augusta National and all other non-PGA TOUR events.
“The PGA TOUR is pleased to announce our extended partnership with Getty Images,” said Paul Johnson, Senior Vice President, PGA TOUR. “Our players strive for excellence on every shot and we expect the same of our imagery. Getty Images has consistently met that challenge in capturing the TOUR’s most iconic moments.”
“Getty Images is delighted to announce our renewed partnership with the PGA TOUR, which enables us to provide an unparalleled product and service to our customers around the world,” said Adrian Murrell, Senior Vice President of editorial for Getty Images. “As the demand for compelling imagery of the sport from our customers continues to grow, Getty Images remains committed to photographing the game of golf.”
