On Tuesday, May 9th, Swiss Haute Horlogerie brand Audemars Piguet gathered an impressive roaster of golfers in Orlando for its first 2017 Golf Invitational.
The concept was simple: Audemars Piguet invited 9 of its incredibly skilled pro golfers with 72 watch collectors and just let the magic happen on the 18 holes of Lake Nona Golf and Country Club. Open Champion Henrik Stenson, Masters winner Danny Willett, former world number 1 Lee Westwood, South Africa’s golfing gem Branden Grace, highlight of the year Bernd Wiesberger, Englishman Ian Poulter, South Korean Ben An and Argentinian Emiliano Grillo were joined by new member and crowd favourite Andrew “Beef” Johnston.
After a stunning demonstration of their rule breaking talent – and banter! – on the driving range, the 9 Audemars Piguet golf Dream Team members captained their respective teams of watch collectors from around the world.
Serena Willliams, tennis record holder of 23 wins in Grand Slam joined the group and completed the family picture during the dinner organized at Ian Poulter’s home, closing the day with the presentation of the Royal Oak Chronograph collection. It did not take long before Serena Williams challenged Ian Poulter and Andrew Johnston to a game mixing golf and tennis.
