Top-ranked golfers and Omega ambassadors Rory McIlroy and Sergio Garcia visited the brand’s dedicated exhibition at the 2016 PGA Championship this week, cutting the ribbon and touring the space.
With the PGA Championship currently underway, the golfers looks time out to participate in a special ribbon-cutting ceremony with Omega President and CEO Raynald Aeschlimann, officially opening the Omega Exhibition at Baltusrol Golf Club.
After the ribbon-cutting, McIlroy and Garcia toured the Planet Omega exhibition, which tells the story of the Swiss watch brand’s heritage and present-day activities through various iconic timepieces. While educational for visitors, the space also highlights Omega’s role as Official Timekeeper of the PGA of America and upcoming Olympic Games.
McIlroy and Garcia later left their “mark” on the exhibition, each autographing their photo wall inside the space, before meeting with the media.
McIlroy, an Omega Ambassador since 2013, won the 2012 PGA Championship in Kiawah Island, S.C. and the 2014 PGA Championship at Valhalla in Louisville, K.Y.; Garcia, an Omega Ambassador since 2003, finished second at the 1999 PGA Championship and has recorded more than 25 professional wins.
