Summary

The TOUR will migrate nearly 100 years of media content to AWS – including video, audio, and images dating back to the 1928 Los Angeles Open – and will stream live footage from future tournaments into the data lake. The TOUR will then use Amazon Rekognition (AWS’s deep learning service that makes it easy to add image and video analysis to applications) to automatically tag content with specific metadata like player names and sponsor logos. To round out the partnership, AWS will become a Trustee of First Tee, a youth development organization supported by the TOUR that reaches more than 3.7 million young people across the United States and select international locations each year, helping them build their strength of character through the game of golf.
