The number of exempt PGA TOUR, PGA TOUR Champions, and/or Korn Ferry Tour members you have under contract and the number of times your product appears on the Darrell Survey will determine the number of credentials that will be issued. Note:: Exempt players are considered as follows: Tournament winner and special exemption categories through the Top 50 from Korn Ferry Tour category (PGA TOUR).
NOTE: An exempt player must be in the field of the current week’s event in order for the Endemic Marketing Partner (Equipment or Apparel Rep) credential to be valid.
The only people or entities who are authorized to capture video footage on-site at PGA TOUR tournaments during tournament week are (i) PGA TOUR (ii) PGA TOUR official broadcasters, (iii) members of the media who have been properly credentialed and whose ability to capture and use such video is strictly limited by PGA TOUR’s media regulations, and (iv) PGA TOUR players, host organizations, and partners (under their applicable social media guidelines). Endemics who have official partnerships in place with the PGA TOUR to capture content on-site at PGA TOUR events must abide by the regulations set forth under their master agreement.
