The OMEGA Swiss Pro-Am with Ernie Els

Back

The early morning mist parted to reveal the full 160 kilometres of mountain panorama as the first players teed off this morning. As the first golfers enjoyed their quiet morning rounds, attention focused on the driving range, where OMEGA?s own golfing ambassador Ernie Els was on hand to provide some useful tips.



Among those wishing to benefit from the experience of the world?s number 2 golfer was young Swiss golfing prodigy Viktor Doka. A mere eight years old, Viktor proved to be a very capable golfer. His current handicap is only 19.



Attention naturally followed Els throughout the day, from the driving range to Tee No. 1 for his midday tee-off with the "dream team" of Gene Cernan, the last man to walk on the moon., Stephen Urquhart, President of OMEGA, and Jean-Claude Biver, an OMEGA director.
