Patrick Reed surged onto the world scene following heroic displays at the 2014 and 2016 Ryder Cups. In both encounters he was the leading points scorer for his team, earning him the title ‘Captain America’ for his spirit and patriotism.
A five-time event winner, Reed now possesses one of the strongest records in world golf, adding Major victory to Ryder Cup, World Golf Championship (won at the WGC-Cadillac Championship in 2014) and PGA Tour crowns.
Reed was joined at the head of The Masters leaderboard by his fellow Hublot Ambassadors, Olympic Champion, Justin Rose, and world No.1, Dustin Johnson, who closed out their campaigns in ties for 10th and 12th, respectively.
The scintillating performance of its Brand Ambassadors, headlined by the continued heroics of Reed, comes amid an incredibly exciting 12 month for the brand and following the launch of the luxury watchmaker’s first golf-specific timepiece, the Big Bang Unico Golf. Inspired by the great game, the newest edition has been crafted with the golfer in mind, offering a mechanism for displaying the number of strokes taken and counts the strokes per hole.
“There is no finer accomplishment in golf than securing victory at The Masters, and we would like to offer our congratulations to Patrick for securing his status amongst golf’s very finest with this win. He continues to show a propensity to perform at his best on the biggest stages and when it matters most, demonstrating all of the characteristics of a true champion,” said Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot.
