The Open golf tournament was inaugurated in 1860 and is the sport’s original championship. Each year the most revered of the four Majors attracts an elite international field to the United Kingdom’s finest links course. But to enter golf history and be presented with the famous Claret Jug, competitors must play with patience, precision and adaptability in often testing weather and course conditions. Rolex has been Patron and Official Timekeeper of The Open for almost 40 years as part of its long-standing partnership with this ancient sport.
Rolex supports the most prestigious events, players and organizations in golf and encourages the development of the game worldwide also through its involvement in amateur and junior golf. The brand is a key presence at men’s and women’s Majors, and at the leading team events, The Ryder Cup, the Solheim Cup and the Presidents Cup. Its contribution to excellence in the sport is based on a rich heritage stretching back more than 50 years, starting in 1967 with Arnold Palmer, joined by fellow members of The Big Three, Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player, legendary players who were instrumental in popularizing the game globally. Throughout this enduring partnership, Rolex has championed both innovation and respect for the traditions and spirit of the ancient game.
