Tiger Woods and TAG Heuer - Unparalleled Union of Professionals

Sep 10, 2010
Golf virtuoso Tiger Woods joined the friendly family of the TAG Heuer ambassadors in 2002. The cooperation between the leading producer of high-end sports watches and the professional golfer has always been on a high professional level and has given birth to some remarkable timepieces.

Unparalleled Career
Having become a professional golfer in 1996, Tiger Woods has had an unparalleled career, having gained victories in 95 tournaments, with 71 of them on the PGA Tour. The list of his achievements includes 4 victories in Masters Tournaments, 4 victories in PGA Championships, 3 victories in U.S. Open Championships, and 3 victories Open Championships. Following his second Masters victory in 2001, the golfer became the first ever player to hold all four professional major championships at the same time. Tiger Woods is presently the career victories leader among active players on the PGA Tour, and is also the leader in tournament earnings.

Tiger Woods Foundation
In 1996, the celebrity golfer and Earl Wood, his father, founded the Tiger Woods Foundation. The work of the Foundation is aimed at providing unique experiences and innovative educational programs for youth worldwide.

The Foundation has opened the Tiger Woods Learning Center, an educational facility for the underserved youth of Southern California. It has also worked out Tiger's Action Plan, nationwide curricula focused at goal-setting, exploring career opportunities and self-discovery through service learning. The foundation offers the Earl Woods Scholarship program, providing a four-year college scholarship to diligent, committed to community service students in financial need.

TAG Heuer Professional Golf Watch
With his great expertise in the field of professional golf, Tiger Woods has taken an active part in the first professional golf watch, with the design meeting the unique ergonomic requirements of the game, having put the end to the rule of golf experts that claimed a golfer should take his wristwatch off before he steps up to the tee.

The TAG Heuer Professional Golf watch was developed to provide absolute comfort on the wrist. The first problem golfers usually face when wearing a conventional wristwatch is the clasp and folding buckle that can hurt the wrist during an intense golf game.

The crown positioned at 3 o'clock can also hurt the player with the bent wrist. To solve these problems, TAG Heuer and Tiger Woods decided to integrate the clasp into the watch head with help of a revolutionary patented system. As for the crown, it was moved to 9 o'clock.

The second problem was caused by the strap that is too loose or too tight. A loose strap hits the wrist and glove. The tight strap is also extremely uncomfortable for golfers as the wrist's diameter changes during the game.

The brand developed a unique ultra-flexible rubber strap that boasts supreme elasticity. The strap does not slide on the wrist and does not hurt the wrist, easily adapting its length to all changes in wrist diameter.

One more important problem the brand and Tiger Woods had to solve was the heavy weight of a conventional watch that affects the golfers swing and putting precision. The Professional Golf watch boasts a super-slim case and features the successful combination of ultra-light titanium, stainless steel and silicon rubber and weighs only 55 grams.

Repetitive and violent shocks caused by golf swings can seriously damage a regular watch. The TAG Heuer watch, with its extremely light weight, strap elasticity and anti-shock design and construction guarantees an outstanding 5,000 G of shock absorption this is 45 times more than the shock the timepiece experiences during a golf swing.

The TAG Heuer Professional Golf watch demonstrates Tiger Woods' logo on the dial and his signature on the case back. It is equipped with a reliable quartz movement - RONDA 1005. The face of the watch offers great legibility due to its luminous hand-applied indexes and markers. The timepiece is 50-meter water-resistant.

The black silicon extensible rubber strap is fitted with a stainless-steel folding buckle incorporated in the case construction, with safety pushbuttons found at 10 and 2 oclock.
The TAG Heuer Professional Golf watch is a great timekeeping instrument for avid watch enthusiasts and golfing purists around the world.
