First off, what an amazing Sunday and great week for both the those close to The Masters, but also for the entire golf industry. Congrats to Tiger on winning his 15th major and 5th green jacket. From a golf industry standpoint, Tiger certainly transcends golf…non golfers tune in and non-golf centric media outlets end up covering golf as a result. A good thing for our industry…and one that will create excitement to play more golf!
While the drama and excitement hit a pinnacle high on Sunday, Team Troon excitement started early in the week and continued into the weekend.
Team Troon Results:
Team Troon clearly made a statement that they were at Augusta National to play well and finish strong. All six PGA Tour Team Troon ambassadors made it into weekend play at Augusta National. Congrats to Patrick Cantlay on his T9 finish. His weekend play was brilliant. He shot a record tying 64 on Saturday. In his final round, following an eagle on 15 he stood on the 16th tee with share of the lead. Ultimately, he would finish three shots shy of Tiger’s 13 under. Matt Kuchar and Justin Thomas were the next two low Team Troon players at T12. Justin Thomas’ final round was highlighted by an amazing ace on the par three 16th… getting him to -8 and also earning him large Masters crystal bowl that is awarded to those that make a hole-in-one in the tournament.
T9 - Patrick Cantlay, -10
T12 – Justin Thomas, -8
T12 – Matt Kuchar, -8
T21 – Matthew Fitzpatrick, -5
