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.
