TOUR

PGA Tour Partners With Amazon
The PGA Tour announced that it had entered into a partnership with Amazon Web Services “that promises to revolutionize how fans consume the game.”

“The AWS partnership comes at the perfect time as Tour grows its global media services,” the Tour’s release said. “A range of AWS services will be utilized in this new media landscape to simplify content delivery, create new digital experiences, and provide enhanced access to archived broadcast footage and highlights.”

The big reveal came in the form of a quote from Scott Gutterman, the PGA Tour’s Senior Vice President, Digital Operations.

“We are excited to utilize AWS media services to further enhance new and existing innovative services for our fans,” Gutterman said.

“Features like Every Shot Live and TOURCast will now be powered by AWS, which will allow for a more streamlined process and overall better product for our fans.”



As Geoff Shackelford pointed out, this is a big deal for golf’s continued foray into gambling, in general, and live betting, in particular.

Additionally, AWS will help the Tour store real-time and historic content — what they’re calling a “data lake” — that will give fans and media access to content dating back to the 1928 Los Angeles Open.

“Our hope is to one day give fans access to all of this content to provide them with a deeper and richer enjoyment of our sport,” Gutterman said.

Finally, AWS will become a Trustee of First Tee, a youth development organization supported by the Tour that reaches more than 3.7 million youth across the United States and select international locations each year, helping them build their strength of character through the game of golf.

Brooks was here. After nagging injuries sullied his 2020 season, Brooks Koepka is back to being the PGA Tour’s resident badass, Ryan Lavner writes.

More new blood. The Golf Channel-NBC team is growing again, adding LPGA Tour winner Morgan Pressel to the mix to join recent on-course additions such as Jim Mackay and John Wood.

An expensive bar bill. A Florida man recently added three aces to his already-impressive tally, but he did so in incredible fashion: he did it over the span of five days.

Picking favorites. If Tiger Woods wasn’t already in the news, he would be this week at Bay Hill, the site of nine(!) of his 82 victories. Here they are, ranked.
