State Of The Art Photo Technology Comes To The Memorial Tournament Presented By Nationwide Insurance

2013-06-01

COLUMBUS, Ohio ---- Fans can be a part of history as the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide Insurance becomes the first PGA TOUR event to offer patrons an opportunity to preserve the moment in panoramic high definition. Photos from the Nationwide GalleryCam will be available on-line, allowing fans to find and tag themselves in the picture and share it with their social networks.

These photos will be a unique keepsake that will allow fans to bring the Memorial Tournament experience to life in a personalized and sharable format,” said Matt Jauchius, chief marketing officer for Nationwide. “Nationwide Insurance is excited to partner with the Memorial to bring this to a PGA TOUR event for the first time.”

Tournament patrons will have two chances to share in this unique experience. The first Nationwide GalleryCam image will be taken Friday, May 31, between 3 – 4 p.m. and will encompass the 14th green and 15th tee box.

The second picture will be captured during the Tournament’s exciting conclusion on Sunday, June 2, between 5 – 6 p.m. as final play approaches the 18th green.

The Nationwide GalleryCam is a tremendous addition to the Tournament’s competition rounds because it captures a special moment, otherwise unavailable to fans, in a no cell phone/camera zone, and is available to be shared, free of charge, with friends via social media or email.

Other Nationwide Insurance highlights at the 38th playing of the Memorial include the Digital House returning to its location just off of the Practice Facility. Patrons can obtain information, engage with fans using social media platforms, charge mobile devices, see golf celebrity appearances and more. A limited supply of free Sirius XM with FM-band radios will be available for use at and away from the course.

Nationwide Insurance has also arranged for free “On Your Side” golf cart rides for those in need of transportation assistance from their parking locations to shuttle stops in satellite parking areas. These efforts are Nationwide's way of extending the same On Your Side experience to golf fans that it extends to Nationwide’s members.

All-week Patron Badges to the 2013 Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide Insurance are available to the general public. The badges, valid May 27 – June 2, cost $155 and include three complimentary any-day Practice Round tickets at no extra cost. As always, kids 12 and under can attend for free, and kids 18 and under are admitted free on Wednesday for Junior Golf Day. The public may call the Tournament Ticket Office 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. weekdays at 877-MT BADGE or visit www.mtbadge.com to purchase badges. Daily tickets for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday practice rounds are also available. The cost is $30, and they are valid for all three practice-round days.
