New York-PGA Tour golfer Sergio Garcia visited Omega’s flagship store on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan on Monday. He had watchmaking lessons and, also, he offered a golf course to a group of local children.

Garcia, who became ambassador for the wristwatch company since 2003, donated his personal Omega “Mission Hills Double Eagle Chronograph Constellation” timepiece, the latest addition to the store’s “Ambassador Collection Series” of autographed watches, which already includes watches by two fellow Omega ambassadors: Olympic swimming champ Michael Phelps and astronaut Buzz Aldrin.

Although he’s a fan of Omega and its watches and a proud ambassador, Garcia told National Jeweler that he doesn’t like to wear a watch while playing golf because it places extra weight on his hand. He said; “”This one, the Constellation, is a great watch and it’s very light.”

Garcia said he has been proud to be an Omega ambassador and also that he owns probably 10 or 12 of the brand’s watches. He added: “They’ve been very generous”.

Sergio Garcia was born in Castello, Spain and started playing golf when he was three. He reached a career high ranking of two after winning the HSBC Champions Tournament and spent much of his career in the top 10 in Official World Golf Rankings. He advises: “The main thing I would say is to enjoy the game and try to be happy with life”.

Garcia is scheduled to represent Spain at the 2009 Omega Mission Hills World Cup, the 55th World Cup of Golf, which will take place from Nov. 26-29 at the Mission Hills Olazabal Course in Shenzhen, China.
