THE MASTERS TOURNAMENT

Rolex and golf

A symbol of tradition and prestige. The Masters Tournament, played at Augusta National Golf Club, is the only Major held at the same venue each year. Created in 1934 with an invitation-only policy, the tournament attracts golf’s elite and produces some of the most memorable moments in the history of the game. All of the best-known players of our time have left their mark there, but only one winner leaves with the famous Green Jacket.

The U.S. Open & U.S. Women's Open Championships

Rolex and golf

Two majors. Two tests of skill, played out on the same course. First up, the U.S. Open, followed by the U.S. Women's Open one week later. Golf's best have been here before, among them Phil Mickelson, who has finished second a record six times. If he wins this year, he'll have accomplished every golfer's dream: the Career Grand Slam. Beyond the tee, caution pairs up with experience, and the game takes on a mental aspect. Fairways, roughs, bunkers and greeens, each tell a story. The most beautiful places are always the most difficult to conquer.

It is a rare motto in golf: play for the good of the team. Yet every two years, sportsmanship unites 24 players as the U.S. battles an international team. They compete with a national pride, but play for the good of the game. With camaraderie as the greatest reward of all.

THE PLAYERS CHAMPIONSHIP

Steeped in prestige and international acclaim, The Players Championship is the top tournament on the PGA Tour. With 125 of the best golfers on the PGA Tour playing to win the coveted prize, competition is fierce while camaraderie remains strong. Past champions at the event include Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Adam Scott and Jack Nicklaus.

THE EVIAN CHAMPIONSHIP

Rolex and golf

Don't be fooled by its beauty. The Evian Championship, now one of the five elite tournaments that count as a Major, is a leading showcase for women’s golf. It is as challenging as it is breathtaking. The redesigned, century-old hillside course at the Evian Resort Golf Club boasts stunning views of Lake Geneva and the Swiss Alps. But equally imposing are its narrow fairways, dense rough and well-defended greens. Add the pressure of playing against the world's best female golfers, and the truth becomes clear: the most impressive thing about The Evian Championship is the sheer skill needed to tame the course.
