Richard Mille Congratulates Partner Bubba Watson

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

New York, New York – Reported by Elite Traveler, the Private Jet Lifestyle Magazine

Bubba Watson, who has fast become a favorite with press and golfing enthusiasts alike, agreed to collaborate with Richard Mille in the production of a tourbillon golfers’ watch, which would resist the shocks and accelerations associated with this sport. The result is the RM 038, and it was presented for the first time at the Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie in Geneva two weeks ago. The watch will be produced as a limited edition of 38 pieces.

A few short weeks after their partnership was announced, Richard Mille is now congratulating Bubba Watson on his first PGA win of the year and the second win of his career, both in less than a year.

Bubba Watson, 32 years old, was impressive during the Farmer Insurance Open Golf Championship at Torrey Pines last weekend, and finished ahead of Phil Mickelson who was playing on home turf. Bubba Watson, who started the final round one shot behind compatriot Phil Mickelson, fired a five-under 67 to finish on 16 under. Dustin Johnson completed the podium of this first tournament of the season. Bubba Watson has also one of the longest drives on the circuit with a distance well-over average.

Nothing seems to stand in the way of his ascension to the top of international golf and the year has started incredibly well for this unique and imaginative player who has, surprisingly, never had a golf lesson in his life.
