Nikon Celebrates 20 Years As Championship Patron - Nikon is celebrating its 20th year as patron of The Open Championship.
Nikon is celebrating its 20th year as patron of The Open Championship golfing tournament.
To mark this significant anniversary Nikon will be hosting number of local activities during the event, including the PGA Coaching Area which invites keen golfers to have their putting stroke analysed by a PGA professional. A Nikon COOLPX P310 compact camera, fast enough to capture 120fps, will be used to record your movement and which will then be evaluated by the coach in order to suggest improvements to your technique.
Nikon will also be hosting the Time Challenge Gallery competition, giving entrants the chance to win a share of £6500 worth of Nikon prizes. Entrants simply have to log on to the Nikon open golf website to identify winners from previous Championship events to be in with a chance of winning.
Jeremy Gilbert, Group Marketing Manager at Nikon UK, said: "We’re delighted to be once again supporting The Open Championship; an event which celebrates not only the best in golf but delivers the world class sporting imagery. We’ve initiated a number of spectator activities this year which aim to inspire, inform and ultimately engage with spectators, with a view to enhancing their experience of this significant event."
