The 104th PGA Championship was held during May 19-22 at the Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Rolex also participated in the event as a timepiece and partner of the conference.

The PGA Championship in the United States is full of splendor, witnessing the brilliant record of many Rolex spokespersons and eight Rolex spokespersons have won 18 championship trophies. Since its inception in 1916, the winner will be awarded the Wanamaker Trophy with his name on it.

Known for its pristine greens, strategy-testing hazards and slender fairways, Southern Hills Golf Course has undergone an extensive renovation under the leadership of the leading golf course designer and Rolex ambassador Gil Hanse .

This year is the fifth time that Southern Hills Country Club has hosted the PGA Championship, setting a new record again. In addition, the historic course has hosted three U.S. Opens. The long tee-off from the tee and the precise hitting of the green are a rigorous test for the players, and they also provide the audience with a wonderful ball game feast. In order to win the championship, players must swing accurately, maintain stability and reliability, and show the top level. These characteristics coincide with Rolex’s unremitting pursuit of lasting excellence and superb watchmaking craftsmanship.

For more than 50 years, the Swiss watchmaking leader Rolex has always been inseparable from the game of golf. Rolex’s association with golf began in 1967 with Arnold Palmer, and his rivals and friends Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player, who became Rolex’s first batch of spokesperson in the field of golf in this year.

Since then, the bond between Rolex and golf has gradually extended to the world. In partnership with two international regulatory bodies, the United States Golf Association (USGA) and the Royal and Ancient Golf Club (The R&A), Rolex is committed to supporting the sport of golf, major championships and major amateur events.
