Omega ambassador Sergio Garcia presents exclusive watches to fellow pro golfers at the 2005 Omega European Masters
Omega ambassador Sergio Garcia finished his first round 5 under par, with playing partner and Ryder Cup team captain Ian Woosnam carding one over. After signing his card, Garcia stopped off at the media centre to present four Omega Double Eagle trophies. First introduced at the Omega European Masters two years ago, the trophy is awarded to any player on one of the major PGA tours who scores a double eagle (also known as an albatross). The reward for this rare achievement takes the form of the brand’s prestige Double Eagle chronometer, with the self-winding rotor visible through the watch’s transparent case back engraved with the player’s name and the date he scored his double eagle (also known as an albatross). The four players awarded the watch were Christian Godfrey from Nigeria, Trevor Fisher from South Africa, Barry Painting from Zimbabwe and Soren Hansen from Denmark. The total number of players to receive the award since its inception two years ago is now 19 worldwide, with nine English players accounting for nearly half of this total.
