PGA Worldwide Golf Exhibitions welcomes media professionals to PGA Golf Shows events. Each type of PGA Show media badge has a required eligibility documentation to ensure a professional business environment at PGA Golf Shows.

  • Editorial media badges (brown) are available to reporting media professionals who are able to provide supporting press credentials during the application process or with current press credentials on file with PGA Worldwide Golf Exhibitions. View the editorial media badge categories and acceptable media eligibility documentation.
    • Within the online and on-site application process, editorial media must agree to the PGA Worldwide Golf Exhibitions rules/regulations of event media coverage, as developed in partnership with The PGA of America, organizing partner to PGA Worldwide Golf Exhibitions events. Preview the rules/regulations.
    • All press credentialing decisions are at the discretion of the PGA Worldwide Golf Exhibitions communications staff.
    • PGA Worldwide Golf Exhibitions reserves the right to suspend editorial media privileges from this and future PGA Worldwide Golf Exhibitions events to any editorial media badge holder who attempts to solicit services, advertising or subscriptions from press, exhibitors or other show attendees. Additionally, approved individuals who abuse their editorial media badge privileges or who misrepresent themselves in obtaining their media badges risk having their credentials revoked, and refused for future PGA Worldwide Golf Exhibitions events.
    • To register as editorial media onsite, journalists must present personal photo identification and working media credentials, such as a press card, masthead listing or a letter of assignment. View the acceptable media eligibility documentation.
