As the world’s finest golfers arrive at Augusta National Golf Club next week to compete in the 79th Masters Tournament, Rolex Replica Daytona is proud to continue as International Partner of this legendary event.
In addition to supporting the tournament since the late 1990’s, Rolex has an unparalleled roster of Testimonee players – including some of the finest young talent–each of whom share Rolex’s values of innovation, precision, excellence, heritage and respect.
This year, Americans Rickie Fowler, Jordan Spieth and Brooks Koepka will be among the favourites teeing up when play starts on Thursday April 9th. Fellow Rolex Testimonee Jason Day will also be hoping to build on his recent record at The Masters.
Spieth was named Rolex Junior Player of the Year by the American Junior Golf Association in 2009 and topped the R&A World Amateur Golf Ranking in 2012. He received worldwide recognition following his Masters debut as a professional in 2014, finishing tied for second place, just three shots back from winner Bubba Watson.
The 21-year-old Texan has since enjoyed a sensational breakthrough year, winning two PGA Tour events and representing Team USA in the 2014 Ryder Cup at Gleneagles, where he contributed 2.5 points. Continuing fine form in 2015, Spieth returns to the Masters after recording his third Tour victory in March.
Meanwhile, fellow Rolex Testimonee Rickie Fowler finished in the Top Five of every Major throughout 2014 and will be looking to add a maiden title this year. Fowler has become a fan favourite at tournaments across the world with his innovative approach to the game and creative, energetic style of play.
Koepka, who is one of the latest additions to the Rolex family, will be making his Masters debut in only his third year as a professional.
Elsewhere, Jason Day will be among the favourites on a course that has suited his game in recent years. The Australian finished T2 in 2011 and third in 2013 and will be looking to build on his Famers Insurance Open win in February
Rolex’s involvement with the world’s finest players spans more than five decades. Arnold Palmer – one of the greatest names in golfing history – was Rolex’s first Testimonee, signing with the leading Swiss watchmaker in 1967. Soon after, Jack Nicklaus, and Gary Player joined as Rolex Replica GMT Testimonees. The ‘Big Three’ would go on to finish their careers with 13 of the famous winners’ Green Jackets between them.
More recent Masters winners such as Tom Watson, Fred Couples, Bernhard Langer, Jose Maria Olazabal, Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Trevor Immelmann, and Adam Scott are also proud wearers of the iconic timepieces and go into the 2015 Tournament hoping to further enhance their reputations at the legendary Georgia golf course.
This year also sees current U.S. Open Champion, three-time European Ryder Cup winner and former World No. 1 Martin Kaymer aiming to add a Green Jacket to his already impressive list of titles.
Since his first Major win in 2010, the German has remodeled his swing to introduce a draw for a better chance of success at Augusta’s famous right-to-left fairways. His commendable innovation has resulted in a series of impressive wins over the past 12 months.
Antonio Murdaca and Matias Dominguez, respective winners of the Asia Pacific Amateur Championship and Latin America Amateur Championship, where Rolex is Official Scoring Partner, will make their Masters debut at the 2015 event as amateurs.
Rolex Director of Image & Communication, Arnaud Boetsch, said: “With such an outstanding field taking part in the 2015 Masters Tournament, Rolex is looking forward to another exciting week at Augusta National Golf Club.
“Since Rolex’s involvement began more than 15 years ago we have seen some exceptional golf and richly deserved wins of the Green Jacket.
“At Rolex we are immensely proud of our relationship with The Masters and the values that we both share. It is a dream come true for any young player to tee up at Augusta National Golf Club, and we’d like to wish all Rolex Testimonees the very best of luck in their quest for success this year.”
An International Partner of the Masters, Replica Rolex Masterpiece has supported this event since the late 1990s. The Swiss watchmaker’s commitment to golf on the global stage is unparalleled, spanning the golfing calendar from the elite all the way through to the amateur level.
