George Clooney: “My golf skills are nothing to brag about!”
In today’s world, it’s rare for a celebrity to reveal a weakness of their own accord. Not so with George Clooney, who is only too happy to have the laughs on his side at his own expense. That makes the 61-year-old all the more likeable, because yes, he is one of the most famous actors in the world. He’s also known for being one of the nicest people in an industry where opinions are divided, and yes, of late he’s proven to be a wonderful family man and loving husband. But you can’t be good at everything, can you, George?
Does George Clooney play golf?
Speaking to guests at the high quality Omega replica watches celebration, hosted by CEO Raynald Aeschlimann and part of the Omega European Masters tournament in Crans Montana in the Swiss Alps, Clooney said he was very impressed with how good professional golfers are — naming Rory McIlroy — while admitting he’s pretty bad himself. The height may have gone to his head, but he shared, ironically, “I’m a big fan of golf, I’ve watched a lot and played a little bit, but it’s a very frustrating sport,” he said. “It’s a terrible sport,” he joked, citing the unpredictability of the sport where you can birdie the same hole that a champion bogey sinks.
George Clooney, looking supremely dapper between a polo shirt and a loose-fitting gray Armani suit with a matching gray shirt, attended the event as a longtime UK best Omega fake watches ambassador and entertained guests by flippantly referring to Aeschlimann as “quasi my sugar daddy”. referred to after the CEO described Clooney as part of the Omega family. Like a secret agent, Clooney has been associated with Omega for over two decades – and on this occasion the silver fox gave a sneak peek of his latest campaign celebrating the new perfect replica Omega Speedmaster ’57 collection watches.
Omega’s Vice President of Products, Gregory Kissling, wore the 1:1 wholesale copy Omega Speedmaster ’57 Co-Axial Master Chronometer Chronograph watches with blue dial, which is extremely wearable at 40.5 mm and appeals to a wide audience of watch lovers with its stainless steel construction. The fact that Gregory Kissling, the spiritual father of the MoonSwatch design, is also a big fan of the latest AAA replica Omega Speedmaster ’57 watches and runs one tells us that it’s a firm favorite in the Omega stable.
Clooney jokingly said he wasn’t quite as old as the ’57 (he was born in 1961), but he loved the watch and he recalled his father always wearing cheap Omega super clone watches when he was younger: “My father always wore an OMEGA. It was the epitome of class. When I first started working with OMEGA 20 years ago I searched his attic and found it, wound it and it worked. That’s what I started with and the ’57 is just a beautiful watch .”
Other stars present throughout the week – all of whom seemed to be better at handling 18 holes than the Ocean’s 11 star – included Ross Butler, Blake Gray, Top Gun: Maverick’s Glen Powell, Anthony Anderson, Paul Wesley and Charlie Day as well Tiffany Haddish, snowboarder Shaun White and actress Nina Dobrev. In the pro tournament, South Africa’s Thriston Lawrence proved too strong for the rest of the field, finishing -18 and defeating Matt Wallace in a thrilling playoff tie.
“It’s always fun to bring a new group of prominent friends to Crans-Montana,” said Aeschlimann. “This year’s teams showed such enthusiasm and passion that they helped make the day truly memorable.” As for Clooney, while most men his age are just entering the prime of golf, he’s more likely to stick around watching the beautiful game than playing it, though he spoke enthusiastically about his stay: “I can understand why Swiss movements Omega fake watches loves it here so much. This brand always offers everything at the highest level and as far as a golf tournament goes I can’t think of a better place or defending champion. I’m really excited to share this special moment with them.”
