HUBLOT & DUSTIN JOHNSON
THE WORLD GOLD NUMBER 1 CHOOSES HUBLOT
He is considered the most gifted and athletic player on the circuit, thanks to his ultra-powerful, precise drives and his superb skills on the putting green. His peers have long known him as "the best player in the world never to have won a Major title", and voted him "Player of the Year" on the PGA Tour in 2016. A much-deserved accolade in recognition of 10 years during which Dustin Johnson has played with an extraordinary determination, confirming the notion that champions are simply those who never give up.
At 32, Dustin Johnson, otherwise known as "DJ", has entered the annals of golf to join the select group of Major title winners. His talent has finally been rewarded with victory. Gaining his first Major tournament title with a win at the US Open in August 2016, DJ enjoyed an exceptional season. He also won the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational and the BMW Championship. As part of the American team, he brought the Ryder Cup back to his country eight years after they last triumphed over the Europeans. Having amassed an impressive Top 10 record, 2016 saw Johnson confirm his status in the discipline, rising to the top of the rankings and winning the PGA Tour Money List. At the peak of his prowess, he confirms his number 1 position in winning the World Golf Championships- Mexico.
The Hublot family brings together men and women who have altered history. Exceptional athletes who have left their mark on the history of sport. The fastest man alive, Usain Bolt; footballing legends Pelé and Maradona; charismatic football manager José Mourinho, and many others. And now, Dustin Johnson has chosen Hublot, "a perfect match" between the watchmaker symbolising "the art of fusion" and the man blazing a trail through professional golf.
"I am honored to join the distinguished list of Hublot Ambassadors, especially since I have always been such an admirer of their timepieces. Each one is so unique, unlike many of the other luxury brands, which I appreciate and enjoy. I am very excited about the partnership and hope to hoist a few trophies with a Hublot on my wrist."
"A genius whose talent has finally been recognised. An athlete with a steely determination who perfectly embodies the philosophy of excellence and passion born from our state of mind; one where the good are separated from the best by talent, hard work, spirit, resolve and passion. Over 10 years, DJ has moved up the world Top 10, often coming tantalisingly close to realising his dream of a Major win. Destiny rewarded his talent in 2016, when all the ingredients for success coalesced perfectly, culminating in the excellence that propelled him to victory. His career has a particular resonance for us, in some respects mirroring that of Hublot. We always remember the day that "changed" our lives. And he also reminds us that each shot on the golf course is crucial; we need to constantly excel ourselves and start over." Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot
