Rolex Testimonees Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Tom Watson, Tiger Woods and Brooks Koepka are among the champions to have risen to the occasion at this revered event. At this tournament, accuracy is everything, making Rolex, Official Timekeeper since 1980, a perfect partner.

Twenty years ago, Tiger Woods won the first of three U.S. Open titles. At the 100th edition, he finished on 12 under par, 15 strokes ahead of his nearest rivals at Pebble Beach; it remains the largest margin of victory in any of the four Majors. The triumph heralded the ‘Tiger Slam’, with Woods adding the PGA Championship and The Open in 2000, and the Masters the following year to become the only player to win four consecutive Majors. His other U.S. Open victories came at Bethpage Black in 2002 and six years later at Torrey Pines, where he prevailed despite injuries, testimony to his unwavering resolve.
