The 2018 Masters Golf tournament is shaping up to be one of the best of modern times. The 82nd edition of Golf’s most exclusive major (just 87 will enter this year’s tournament) will see the return of Golf’s most well-known player, as Tiger Woods attempts to win a fifth Masters crown at the Augusta National course.
Mix with this the tender age of the two front runners Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas, and you have a real new meets old feel to this year’s event. A cursory look at the tournament odds shows a real disparity between the top and the bottom. This is because all previous winners are eligible to play the tournament, which adds to the prestige and tradition of The Masters.
The Augusta National course was created from a former plant nursery, and its green beginnings are reflected throughout the course. Each of the holes is named after a plant or shrub, the iconic jacket placed on the winner each year is a vibrant green and the association is completed by the sponsor boards bearing the Rolex branding. For more than 50 years Rolex has shared, and helped to shape the traditions of The Masters, as part of its portfolio of high-end sports sponsorship.
Rolex began its links (no pun intended) with Golf in the 1960’s, when it began an association with the ‘big three’ players of the time. Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player became brand ambassadors, with each proudly wearing a Gold Day Date. Between them they won 13 Masters titles and helped to establish a link between Rolex and the sport of Golf.
Rolex now have a ‘New Guard’ of golfers that act as brand ambassadors including Spieth and Thomas, as well as 4 more of the world top ten ranked Golfers. The current Rolex partnership with Golf also sees it sponsor two other Major championships, The Open and the US Open, as well as being a lead sponsor of the Ryder Cup. Rolex has enjoyed a 20-year association with the European Golf tour, with the 8 biggest tournaments on the calendar forming the ‘Rolex Series’, which culminates at the World Tour Championships in Dubai.
The synergetic relationship between the past and the present at The Masters means it has become the most recognisable and iconic tournament on the Golf calendar. It’s link with the Rolex watch brand reflects how both continue to drive forward without ever forgetting the innovative nature of their past. Regardless of who puts on the famous green jacket come Sunday evening, it’s clear that the partnership between The Masters and Rolex will see this tournament remain at the very top of the international sporting calendar.
