For Everyone’s Enjoyment of the Tournament
To enhance the autograph experience for all spectators, while allowing players to properly prepare for competition, the PGA TOUR has established the following guidelines:
- On-course autograph seeking is prohibited
- Autograph seeking will be restricted to designated autograph zones organized and managed by the tournament
Cameras and Bags
Cameras are not allowed on course during tournament rounds, Thursday–Sunday. Cell phones may be used to take photos all days during the tournament. No large bags or backpacks. All items are subject to search. Unauthorized items will be confiscated.
Mobile phones are allowed, but must remain on silent at all times. Calls may be placed or received away from play. No live streaming is permitted at any time. Photography and audio is permitted at any time during the tournament. Data use (texting, email) permitted everywhere except when players are in position to compete (i.e. when marshals’ hands are raised).
Marshals, easily identifiable by their bright blue jackets, are on all three courses to remind spectators when to be quiet or still. Whenever you see a marshal with raised hands you should refrain from making noise or moving.
