Rolex and Golf
ROLEX & THE RYDER CUP
The Ryder Cup reflects outstanding qualities: selflessness, solidarity and faith in the team. The matches, sometimes fierce, unfold with utmost respect between opponents. These encounters are also privileged moments of transmission between accomplished champions and younger elite golfers.
Accompanying the European team since 1995, Rolex has also been Worldwide Partner of The Ryder Cup since 2021.
The formula for success
The buzz of the cup
With more than 200,000 spectators present over the three days of competition and millions of television viewers around the world, The Ryder Cup is an exceptional event in the world of golf.
It unites players and fans in the passionate support of a team, creating an ambience unlike any other in golf. The clamour of the crowd pushes players to give their all for the good of the collective. In this spirit, during the 2018 edition in France, Rolex Testimonee Francesco Molinari made competition history by winning all five of his matches, four doubles and the singles. Before him, no European player had achieved such a feat.
Rolex and golf
A foundation of shared values
Golf is more than a sport. It embodies values that make it an experience unlike any other. Precision, integrity, humility and respect. These are values that are also deeply rooted in Rolex’s identity. It is for this reason that, for almost 60 years, Rolex has supported golf. This long-standing commitment was initiated in 1967 with legendary champion Arnold Palmer, who was joined by Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player, known as The Big Three. It now extends to the leading institutions and events as well as the sport’s top players and younger talent.
