Virtual Eye Golf delivered 11 separate feeds into the PGA Championship in the U.S.A. from our Remote Operations Suite in New Zealand. It was the biggest production we have ever done, in a season where we will cover 500 days of golf remotely. The Valspar Championship, the Wells Fargo Championship, the AT&T Byron Nelson and the Charles Schwab Challenge were the other events on the PGA Tour this past month. On the European Tour, the British Masters at The Belfry and Made in Denmark at Himmerland were also supported remotely, and the 2021 KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship capped off May for our busy Golf team.
