Pittsford, N.Y. – The Media Center at Oak Hill Country Club is 32,000 –square-feet and inside there’s 260 media outlets from around the globe.

Large televisions with play by play and scores helps keep journalists, photographers and hosts up to date and ready to report multiple times and hour.

Since 2003 the tent has gotten bigger and there's more of a demand for social media.         

“With the website it’s like you don't have deadline you just keep going,” said Jeff Baineau with Golf Week Magazine. “We'll have people writing out the morning wave, we're out covering the afternoon stuff and usually we work through the night to get our weekly magazine out on Monday.”

“It's a huge undertaking we have about 75 people here producing content just for the digital platform,” said Gary Treater, Senior Director of Turner Broadcasting and PGA.com, “and about probably another 40-50 people in Atlanta supporting us.”

The demand for online coverage has changed just in the last year. Live streaming over broadband and on mobile devices was up 106% over last year’s opening round coverage for PGA.com.
