Rory McIlroy signed a new multi-million dollar sponsorship deal with Swiss watchmakers Omega

McIlroy signed a $125million deal with Nike in January and announced a deal with Bose and this latest deal is a massive coup for the 23 year old.

Stephen Urquhart, the president of OMEGA, is thrilled with the signing. He said: “Rory is one of those golfers who lights up every course he plays on. In recent years, he has been golf’s most exciting player and he has already attracted legions of new fans. He’s the sort of golfer who is good for the sport and for its image. I can hardly wait to see how far his extraordinary talent will take him. We are all delighted that he is now part of the OMEGA family.”

Rory McIlroy is also looking forward to the partnership. He said: “Omega has a rich history in sport, both with the Olympics and in golf, and I have always had great experiences playing in its events. I have been a fan of the brand for a long time so to now be an Omega ambassador is special for me. I am truly excited about this new partnership and look forward to many great years together.

“It’s a brilliant fit for me, as they don’t endorse too many and if you look at who they do – George Clooney, Nicole Kidman, Michael Phelps, Greg Norman – you will see the calibre."
