The Masters
Tournament

Jason Day
For Jason Day, winning golf’s coveted Green Jacket would be a dream come true. Since turning professional in 2006, the Australian has regularly enjoyed tournament success, including victory at the World Golf Championship in 2014, followed by his first triumph in a Major at the 2015 PGA Championship.

With three top-10 finishes at the Masters, Day enters the 2019 event on the back of another consistent season in 2018, when he won twice on the PGA TOUR and had five top-10 finishes.

Hideki Matsuyama
Japan’s Hideki Matsuyama was taught to play at a young age by his father, a former club champion. Since joining the PGA TOUR in 2013 he has won five titles, including three in his breakthrough year of 2017, when he reached No. 2 on the Official World Golf Ranking.

He has also won eight times on the Japan Golf Tour and enters this year’s Masters Tournament knowing his best performance in a Major came at Augusta in 2015.

Adam Scott
Winning the Masters Tournament in 2013 was especially satisfying for Adam Scott. His first Major was the first by an Australian at Augusta National Golf Club, but even more significantly, the victory came less than a year after his disappointing finish at The Open when in sight of victory.

His Masters win, holing a 4-metre birdie putt in a sudden-death play-off, spoke volumes for his resilience. Just over a year later, Scott assumed the World No. 1 ranking.

Brooks Koepka
With a calm demeanour and muscular playing style, Brooks Koepka is one of the Rolex New Guard, a generation of golfers asserting their authority on the game and spurring each other to greater heights.

He enters this year’s Masters after a stellar 2018 when he successfully defended his U.S. Open title, making him the first golfer in 29 years to win the event back to back. He then added a third Major for good measure, the PGA Championship, and assumed the World No. 1 ranking.

Jon Rahm
Since turning professional in 2016 while holding the No. 1 amateur ranking, Spain’s Jon Rahm has won twice on the PGA TOUR and collected six career titles in total. Like the countryman he grew up idolizing, the late Seve Ballesteros, Rahm is a fearless competitor with great touch – traits that will come to the fore on the hallowed fairways and greens of Augusta National Golf Club.

His best result to date in a Major was his fourth-place finish at last year’s Masters.

Bryson DeChambeau
Bryson DeChambeau carded the lowest score by an amateur when he tied for 21st place on his Masters debut in 2016. He turned professional immediately after the event and has since won five tournaments on the PGA TOUR, including four in 2018.

THE DAY-DATE 40

Available only in 18 ct gold or platinum, it was the first wristwatch to display the date and day of the week spelt out in full in a window on the dial. With the President bracelet, originally created especially for it, the Day-Date continues to be the watch par excellence of influential people – like the elite golfers invited to compete at the Masters, they are the leaders in their field.
