Apply For Media Credentials

The SAS Championship, to be held Oct. 9 – 15, 2017 at Prestonwood Country Club, is now accepting media credential requests. If you have not done so already, please submit your application online at pgatourmedia.com before Oct. 6.

The media credentialing site has recently been redesigned, so if you are visiting the site for the first time, even if you have applied for credentials to the event in the past, you will need to register by creating a username and password.

Please go to pgatourmedia.com and select “media credentials.” Once you have registered, login using the username and password you created.

  • Click “start a new credential request,” then select “PGA TOUR Champions” and the tournament you would like to apply for credentials.
  • Complete steps 1-4 in order to apply for credentials.
  • NOTE: a headshot is now required for all applications.
  • Make sure to click the submit button at the bottom of the page.
  • Once your credential request has been successfully submitted, you will receive a confirmation email.
  • Additional step-by-step instructions are attached to this message.

Please note that media credentials and parking passes will NOT be sent by mail. Once your credential request has been approved, you will receive an electronic media gate pass via EMAIL in advance of the championship. The gate pass will allow you to park and access the media center the first day you arrive on-site to pick up your credentials.

Should you have any questions or issues with the application process or with pgatourmedia.com, please contact Maureen Radzavicz, Communications Manager, at 607-624-5200 or maureenr@pgatourhq.com or Christopher Vurnakes, Senior Tournament Executive, at (919) 451-4602 or christopher.vurnakes@octagon.com.

    RADIO AND TELEVISION RIGHTS:
    The PGA TOUR has licensed exclusive television and radio rights to originate live, play-by-play coverage of the event from the golf course. Other radio and television stations or networks may provide news coverage of the event, provided they agree to and abide by the PGA TOUR Media Regulations presented on this site. The sports editor, sports director or photo editor of the Authorized Outlet must accept the appropriate PGA TOUR Media Regulations; no credentials will be issued unless the Regulations are accepted. Each credential issued pursuant to PGA TOUR Media Regulations operates as PGA TOUR authorization allowing only the holder of such credential and the Authorized Outlet thereof to use certain information gathered pursuant to the credential (including photographs, videotape, etc.).

PGA TOUR MAY REVOKE CREDENTIALS AT ANY TIME FOR ANY REASON INCLUDING VIOLATIONS OF ANY OF THE PGA TOUR MEDIA REGULATIONS.
