It might not be the best idea to wear an automatic wrist watch playing golf, though. The winding mechanisms on these are sensitive to the huge rotational forces good golfers produce. It'll look great on his wrist, but he might bust a main spring on the downswing!

I wonder what Tag Heuer is thinking now...

I'm guessing they offered a sliding scale based on his performance given it's a five year deal.  If he does well, he makes more, if not, Rolex is protected.  Smart move on Rolex's part if this is what they did, always want to buy low.

I had Tag Heuer before Tiger hit the golf scene and I'll still have one when he hits the Senior (oops, Champions) Tour.  His endorsement means nothing to me, but it's probably good for golf.

Either way, good that he has a new sponsor I guess



I don't think many would agree that TAG makes far better watches than Rolex but they are a popular brand with a nice racing heritage. Rolex is in a different class IMO and as far as golf is concerned Rolex is the top name in the industry. Nicklaus, Palmer and Player all endorsed Rolex. It's the top watch brand in the world. AP seems to be an upcoming brand in golf and they are leagues above either Rolex or TAG.

Another myth!  This is simply not true.

I would rather have a TAG on my wrist than a Rolex.

Only because I prefer the style of TAG over Rolex

it's like a suit kinda... gives an impression.

i think this was well played by rolex, pick up a superstar (fallen or not) at a low price, and good for tiger.... those child-support payments must be a big pain in the butt.

I have both and I would say from a style stand point TAG by far but performance would be Rolex. The Rolex just seems to run smoother and involves less time on the winder. I will say for the price Tissot makes probably the best over all watch in terms of bang for your buck.

He either doesn't own a winder or flat out just doesn't take care of it. There is no way a battery operated watch should ever out perform a quality automatic.

Back to the point I think the deal looks good for both parties Tiger needs to play good golf to get paid and Rolex is protected.

    • I am getting very tired of these slow starts. 6-6-5-4. 6 over before  hit the 5th tee. Doesn't matter how many I hit at the range, it always seems to take me 4 holes to loosen up and settle in......
    • Just buy one more hybrid, you hit that really good!!!  Glad to see you back at the game again. It was fun playing golf with you up in Wisconsin! 
    • I hope more and more people are figuring this stuff out, taking those CC fitting sheets to other fitters and getting fit the right way. I just don't get how someone can look at those prices and be ok with that??
    • Played 9 today.  had my best off the tee nine holes in a while. Weakened the right hand slightly so fast the right thumb feels more on top of the left thumb and less off to the side. It helped me feel like I could swing out at the ball better. 
    • This seems like a great consideration. I'm going to reach out to the girls friends' parents and see if I can add more to the party. We have a first tee program here that I'd like to sign them up for, but they have so many activities and camps scheduled for the summer that the 6 week programs they run don't work for us. That is great to hear he is playing golf at a high level, and that he found the right sport for him. I love this idea. It seems like a great way to play with kids. I'm going to keep this in mind.
