The 2014 Golf Season is in full swing this weekend as the final rounds of the US Open take place at the Pinehurst #2 Golf Course in Pinehurst NC. The open is the second of the four major golf tournaments held annually and traditionally concludes on the third Sunday in June.
Unlike other major golf tournaments the US Open is held on a different course each year. Last year’s open was held at the Merion Golf Club in Ardmore, PA, where English golfer Justin Rose defeated American players Phil Mickelson and Ernie Els.
Mickelson could clinch the top prize on Sunday to win his first US Open, while German golfer Martin Kaymer, American player Fran Quinn and Korean player Kevin Na also have a very good chance of taking the title.
Although golf legend Tiger Woods is not participating in the tournament, due to recuperating from back surgery, his name appears in many news reports regarding the event as another tournament he will not be playing in this year.
Timing is everything on and off golf course for players such as Mickelson, Els and Woods, all who serve as brand ambassadors for luxury watch brands Rolex, Omega and TAG Heuer respectively. Wearing a lightweight watch is vital when playing the game, since a bulky, weighty model could interfere with their swing and the outcome of the game.
Professional golfers in the league of Woods, Mickelson and Els prefer wristwatches with silicone straps that comfortably fit on the wrist and do not interfere with motion. The TAG Heuer Autoracer Men’s watch, available at luxury retailer The Watchery, is an excellent choice.
This outstanding men’s automatic watch features a comfortably-sized, black ion-plated stainless steel case and black silicone strap. The black unidirectional rotating bezel surrounds the black dial with an automatic date calendar, luminous hands and hour markers.
Watch is 42mm in diameter, 12mm thick and features Swiss-made automatic movement, a locking screw-down crown and case back for water-resistance to 500 meters.
Complementary delivery is included on all domestic watch purchases at The Watchery.
