Guests from 12 different countries joined the illustrious roster of the Audemars Piguet Golf Ambassador Team in the experience of a lifetime at the Audemars Piguet Golf Invitational 2013.
The setting of this lively and exclusive event was the prestigious and demanding Liberty National Golf Course with its stunning mile-long waterfront affording breathtaking views of the Manhattan skyline – most notably the Statue of Liberty, which is the main attraction on several approach shots.
The scramble game formula afforded guests to a challenging round in the company of the Audemars Piguet golfing “dream team” – some of whom arrived directly following the 2013 US Open in Ardmore, PA, comprised of Graeme McDowell, Lee Westwood, Keegan Bradley, Ian Poulter, Bud Cauley, Darren Clarke, Cristie Kerr, Morgan Pressel and Belen Mozo. Before the start of the tournament, Audemars Piguet’s CEO François-Henry Bennahmias introduced each of these nine outstanding professionals highlighting the friendly bond created over the years, whilst demonstrating their skills on the driving range. After a very close tournament, the team led by Morgan Pressel and Graeme McDowell won with a score of 181.
All those in attendance revelled in their shared enthusiasm for golf and for the Audemars Piguet approach to watch making; two skills that require a blend of passion and precision, technique and artistry – all governed by rigorous discipline. Once again, the array of exceptional players from the Audemars Piguet Golf Ambassador Team perfectly embody the brand’s philosophy “To break the rules, you must first master them”.
