Rory McIlroy, Sergio Garcia hit golf balls -- in spacesuits -- at Quail Hollow

To celebrate the 60th anniversary of OMEGA's Speedmaster watch, the company had two of its high-profile endorsers -- Rory McIlroy and Sergio Garcia -- take part in a pretty neat stunt on Monday at Quail Hollow.

The Speedmaster is nicknamed "The Moonwatch" because NASA qualified it for use on its piloted missions beginning in 1965. Since then, the watch has been worn on all six lunar landings.

As an ode to that fact, McIlroy and Garcia donned spacesuits to hit a variety of shots at Quail Hollow.

Here's some video of the event:
