Getty Images, the visual media creator and marketplace, has extended its photographic services partnership with US golf’s PGA Tour to serve as its exclusive commercial photo supplier.

Through the agreement, Getty will retain the designation of official photographic services provider of the PGA Tour, PGA Tour Champions, and the Korn Ferry Tour.

The extension prolongs the long-standing relationship between Getty and the PGA Tour, which began in 2005.

It will continue to provide the tour, its players, tournaments, business partners, and global media with access to its collection of golf imagery.

In addition, the partnership will be expanded to include coverage of every PGA Tour Champions and Korn Ferry Tour event, double the number of photographers on site at PGA Tour events, and add Wednesday coverage to the existing Thursday through Sunday coverage.

Getty has other interests in golf, including sponsorship of the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) and as a photographic partner of the PGA of America.

Elsewhere, it is an official photographer or photographic partner for the likes of the Formula 1 and Nascar motor racing series', soccer governing bodies FIFA and UEFA, soccer clubs Manchester United and Bayern Munich, the International Olympic Committee, the International Cricket Council, Major League Baseball, ice hockey’s National Hockey League, basketball’s NBA, and Ultimate Fighting Championship.

Brian Oliver, executive vice president for Marketing and corporate partnerships at the PGA Tour, said: “Since 2005, Getty Images has proven its ability to capture all the great moments on tour along with the personality and uniqueness of our players. They do a tremendous job of capturing our players and the excitement of the competition every week on the PGA Tour.”

Peter Orlowsky, senior vice president of strategic partnerships for Getty Images, added: “We have been capturing celebrated moments in golf along with our partners at PGA Tour for the better part of two decades and are excited for the next chapter of this collaboration.”
