Nikon Sponsors the Open Golf Championship

Nikon Europe today announces its sponsorship of the 2009 Open Golf Championship, marking the 16th consecutive year the company has sponsored the world-famous event. This year’s event will be held at Turnberry, Scotland, between 16-19 July.

The Open Golf Championship is one of Nikon’s most significant worldwide sponsorship, having been a patron of the event since 1993. The company is now set to continue its patronage until 2012, ensuring a prominent brand presence at the event for years to come.

As with previous years, a host of professional photographers will attend the event, ready to capture some of sport’s most inspiring images. Nikon will be providing a dedicated photography service depot on site for photographers where they can loan equipment, or check their equipment in for cleaning or repair services.

Yvonne Billenkamp-Schaefers at Nikon Europe B.V. said: “Nikon’s patronage of The Open Golf Championship continues to be central to our sponsorship activity, effectively enhancing our brand message across the Nikon range. We are looking forward to this year’s event and maximising our position over the coming years.”
