SCOTTSDALE, ARIZ. – (April 10, 2018) Michael Phelps, OMEGA ambassador and the most- decorated Olympian of all time with a total of 28 medals, joined Swiss watchmaker OMEGA today at the OMEGA Golf Trophy event at Troon North in Scottsdale.

OMEGA, Official Patron of the PGA of America and Official Timekeeper of the Olympic Games, hosted the sixth of 11 tournaments Tuesday that make up the OMEGA Golf Trophy series.

OMEGA began the second-annual OMEGA Golf Trophy series in Orlando, Fla. on Jan. 23. Over the course of the year, OMEGA will host 11 VIP events at prestigious golf courses in Orlando, Houston, Naples, Fla., Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Scottsdale, Ariz., Honolulu, Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas and Morristown, N.J.
