Nikon sponsor The Open Golf Championship 2006
Press Release:
Now in its 135th year, this year’s Open will be held from July 20th- 23rd at the Royal Liverpool Hoylake course on the picturesque Dee estuary, the second-oldest links course in the country.

Since its sponsorship began in 1993, Nikon has supplied cameras, binoculars and digital equipment to the event, as well as supporting The Open’s Media World section of the tournament’s web site at www.opengolf.com.

A host of professional photographers will be using Nikon’s flagship cameras at the event to ensure all the action is ‘At The Heart Of The Image’. Visitors to The Open web site will be able to vote for their favourite Open image and view images taken by Nikon professional photographers at last year’s championship.

There will also be the opportunity for visitors to have their photographs taken by one of the ‘Red Snapper’ Nikon pros which can be emailed to keep as a memento or to show off golfing skills on the Nikon golf simulator. Money raised will go towards Nikon’s appointed charity, the Shooting Star Foundation.

Martina Beckmann, Manager Marketing Communications for Nikon Europe, said: “The Open Golf championship is a highlight of the summer sporting calendar, bringing together the best golfers in the world. It is in this environment of excellence that Nikon is proud to be a sponsor of this amazing competition.

I think your statement is slightly incorrect that "Nikon sponsors the Open" I think you may find they are partners and of course the official camera supplier.
