Golf stars become 'Astronauts for a Day'


Rory McIlroy and Sergio Garcia swapped their traditional golf-attire for spacesuits at the 2017 PGA Championships.

The top-ranked golfers and friends of OMEGA donned astronaut suits and took turns driving a lunar rover golf buggy at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, North Carolina, to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the first watch on the Moon.

Thrilled fans cheered and took photos as two of the world's most dedicated golfers set their pre-match concerns aside to indulge in some practice-day fun.

Throughout the week, the lunar rover will be moved around Quail Hollow Club, challenging guests to find its daily location and offering a unique photo opportunity.
