AP's "Time with the Masters"

The Audemars Piguet “Time with the Masters” Golf Day was successfully held on 21 October at the Lan Hai International Golf Club in Shanghai.

David von Gunten, CEO of Audemars Piguet Hong Kong and China, along with Li Li, Country General Manager of Audemars Piguet Mainland China, and guests from mainland China and Hong Kong enjoyed a challenging and rewarding day on the golf course with two Audemars Piguet Golf Ambassadors, Graeme McDowell and Louis Oosthuizen.

Prior to the competition, an exclusive clinic session with the two golf ambassadors was especially organized at the club’s driving range. The two golf masters, Graeme McDowell and Louis Oosthuizen, took the opportunity to share their golfing experience with the guests. David von Gunten, CEO of Audemars Piguet Hong Kong and China and the two Audemars Piguet Golf Ambassadors officiated the event by hitting the opening drives together. Following the opening ceremony, the two masters joined the guests for the round which included a number of special awards such as ‘Nearest to the Pin’, 'Longest Drive’, 'Longest Putt' and ‘Straightest Drive’.

Commenting on the event, David von Gunten said: “It is indeed a very exclusive and rare opportunity not only to have two world-class golf masters playing golf with our guests but also having them to personally demonstrate and share with us their experience during the clinic session. Our guests were able to get some inspiration and useful tips from our golf ambassadors and most importantly, to apply them in practice."

Audemars Piguet, one of golf’s premier sponsors, have long believed that the worlds of watchmaking and golf have always been interlinked as both skills require a blend of passion and precision, technique and artistry – all governed by rigorous discipline. As members of the golf ambassador team, Graeme McDowell and Louis Oosthuizen share Audemars Piguet values, such as integrity, passion, respect and sophistication. The Audemars Piguet Golf Ambassadors perfectly embody the brand’s philosophy, "To break the rules, you must first master them".
