The Audemars Piguet Golf Team takes over in Orlando
Audemars Piguet takes advantage of its Golf Invitational in Orlando to launch its new Royal Oak Chronograph collection in the presence of Serena Williams and nine of its famous pro golfers
Swiss Haute Horlogerie brand Audemars Piguet gathered an impressive roaster of golfers in Orlando for its first 2017 Golf Invitational.
The concept is simple: Audemars Piguet invited 9 of its incredibly skilled pro golfers with 72 watch collectors and just let the magic happen on the 18 holes of Lake Nona Golf and Country Club. Open Champion Henrik Stenson, Masters winner Danny Willett, former world number 1 Lee Westwood, South Africa’s golfing gem Branden Grace, highlight of the year Bernd Wiesberger, Englishman Ian
Poulter, South Korean Ben An and Argentinian Emiliano Grillo were joined by new member and crowd favourite Andrew “Beef” Johnston.
After a stunning demonstration of their rule breaking talent – and banter! – on the driving range, the 9 Audemars Piguet golf Dream Team members captained their respective teams of watch collectors from around the world.
Serena Willliams, tennis record holder of 23 wins in Grand Slam joined the group and completed the family picture during the dinner organized at Ian Poulter’s home, closing the day with the presentation of the Royal Oak Chronograph collection. It did not take long before Serena Williams challenged Ian Poulter and Andrew Johnston during a game mixing golf and tennis!
Through dedication and hard work, these athletes have constantly achieved the highest results and perfectly embody Audemars Piguet’s philosophy “To break the rules, you must first master them”. Bearing witness to its unfailing attachment to golf, Audemars Piguet has chosen to focus on this passion by effectively building one of the world’s finest team of golfers. Darren Clarke, Paul Dunne, Miguel Ángel Jiménez, Romain Langasque, Renato Paratore, Andy Sullivan and Peter Uihlein, complete the Audemars Piguet Golf Dream Team.
