Audemars Piguet invited a roster of 16 ambassadors and special guests to Orlando for its first 2018 Golf Invitational earlier this month.
64 watch collectors from around the world were invited to join the watch brand and its sporting ambassadors the ‘Dream Team’ for a golfing experience at the Lake Nona Golf and Country Club.
Audemars Piguet’s guests played alongside 2016 Open Champion Henrik Stenson, 2016 Masters winner Danny Willett, golf legends Vijay Singh and Miguel Angel Jiménez, Englishmen Ian Poulter and Tyrrell Hatton, Argentinian Emiliano Grillo, Americans Peter Uihlein and Bud Cauley, as well as the Dream Team’s new members Xander Schauffele and Wesley Bryan. Young Curtis Luck and Marty Dou also joined the special event.
Me and My Golf, the world number one golf Youtubers, set up a team competition on the driving range and, after a demonstration of the ambassadors’ skills and competitiveness, trickshot artists Tania Tare and Wesley Bryan took over to show off their extraordinary talent.
Following this entertaining warm-up, the professionals led their respective teams around the challenging course at Lake Nona. Each client enjoyed nine holes with a different ambassador.
After an eventful day on the course, the Audemars Piguet family reunion continued the celebrations at Henrik Stenson’s home. This special treat included a visit of his trophy room and a friendly dinner in the garden.
The company has gradually been building its team of sporting ambassadors in what it calls its “Dream Team”, a list that now includes Bud Cauley, Darren Clarke, Paul Dunne, Branden Grace, Emiliano Grillo, Miguel Ángel Jiménez, Andrew Johnston, Romain Langasque, Renato Paratore, Ian Poulter, Xander Schauffele, Henrik Stenson, Vijay Singh, Andy Sullivan, Peter Uihlein, Lee Westwood, Bernd Wiesberger, and Danny Willett.
