OMEGA transforms golfers into astronauts

OMEGA, Official Patron of the PGA of America, combined its passions for golf and space in a unique on-course activity at the 2017 PGA Championship. OMEGA’s Speedmaster timepiece, launched in 1957, began its official space legacy in 1965 when NASA qualified it for use on its piloted missions. Since then, it has been worn on all six lunar landings and earned the nickname “the Moonwatch.” As part of the Speedmaster 60th Anniversary, top-ranked golfers and OMEGA Ambassadors Rory McIlroy and Sergio Garcia donned astronaut suits and took turns driving a lunar rover to start PGA Championship week at Quail Hollow Club.
