If you were following the U.S. Open yesterday, you watched Brooks Koepka swing his way to victory for the second year in a row. Koepka is the first player to win the U.S. Open in back-to-back years since Curtis Strange did it in 1988 and 1989, and he’s only the second to do it since Ben Hogan in 1950 and 1951. The tournament took place at Shinnecock Hills, New York, and saw Koepka battle out Tommy Fleetwood and Dustin Johnson for first place, ending the tournament at one over par on Sunday afternoon. But what we’re most interested in is what happened after Koepka clinched his second title.
As he raised the trophy, Koepka (a Rolex ambassador) was seen wearing the latest Sea-Dweller reference 126600, which was released at Baselworld last year. You may recall that at the 2017 U.S. Open Koepka was spotted wearing the much-coveted ceramic Daytona in white that was released in 2016. The Sea-Dweller was a bit of a controversial update, with the newly-added Cyclops magnifier over the date window causing a stir with some purists. Rolex continues to support athletes across a variety of sports, especially during major tournaments such as the U.S. Open, so it’s not all that surprising to see this watch make a winning appearance.
