Swiss watchmaker Omega, a long-time investor in golf marketing, has added two rising PGA Tour stars to its endorsement roster: Harris English and Kyle Stanley.

English, 23, won his first PGA Tour title June 9 at the FedEx St. Jude Classic. The four-time All-American from the University of Georgia turned pro in September 2011, following his victory at that year's Nationwide Children's Hospital Invitational.

Meanwhile, Stanley, 25, recorded his first victory on Tour at the 2012 Waste Management Phoenix Open. Thus far this season, he has three top-10s, including two third-place finishes. The two-time All-American from Clemson University won the Ben Hogan Award in 2009, and in the following year, led the Tour (then the Nationwide Tour) in driving distance with an average of 317.7 yards.

On the Official World Golf Ranking, Stanley is 60th and English is 85th. readers: We value your input and welcome your comments, but please be respectful in this forum.
