Tag Heuer and Tiger Woods - Timekeeping For Professional Golfers
In addition, the sportsman tested the Professional Golf Watch patterns and wore the pro-series in golf tournaments. To develop the right timepiece for professional golfers was a really complicated task. Golfers avoid wearing a watch for certain reasons - the wrist of a golfer is always under extra loading but a watch implies the additional weight on the wrist and discomfort of a loose or tight strap. However, Tag Heuer's experienced team of watchmakers and designers managed to overcome all the obstacles.TAG Heuer and the iconic golf-player Tiger Woods have maintained a continuous partnership. TAG Heuer-Tiger Woods successful cooperation started in 2003 - the sportsmen became the brand's Global Ambassador. Tiger Woods has played a significant role in designing and developing of TAG Heuer timepieces, including the Link Tiger Woods Special Edition. In April, 2005 TAG Heuer developed a watch for professional golf-players - the first ever in the world. The TAG Heuer Professional Golf Watch appeared in a limited-edition of just 8000 pieces. Tiger Woods personally took part in the development of the timepiece's design, using his profound experience in the field of professional golf.
