Results From Last Week
Last week’s PGATOUR event (the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill) looked like a “survival of the fittest” with the course and conditions playing tough for the entire field. It was one of the highest scoring weekends in the event history and the winning score of -4 (by first time winner Tyrrell Hatton), was following a final round 74! Team Troon ambassador Matt Fitzpatrick represented Troon well with a solid Top 10 Finish (if you recall, last year he played well at Bay Hill finishing in 2nd). Fitz did have his challenges as overcame 2nd and 3rd rounds of 75 by shooting the lowest score in the field on Sunday (69) to finish T9. Solid playing Matt!
Congrats Matt Fitzpatrick on this solid Top 10 Finish: T9 Matt Fitzpatrick, 70-75-75-69, +1
What is commonly referred to as the “5th Major”, The Players, tees up in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida at TPC Sawgrass. The field is strong and Team Troon will be well represented with 5 of our 6 PGATOUR Players competing for a massive purse ($15 Million Purse with $2.7Millon going to the champion) and World Golf Ranking implications.
Team Troon will have five professionals in the field this week:
Also coming up the following week will be the LPGA Founder Cup in Scottsdale, AZ. Cheyenne Woods will need to Monday Qualify to get into the field (next Monday, March 16) but will do so on a course she is familiar with…the Troon Golf-managed Longbow Golf Club in Mesa, Arizona. She has played Longbow Golf Club numerous times going back to the AJGA Heather Farr Classic, so look for a solid number from her on Monday. Go Low Cheyenne!
In advance of the Arnold Palmer Invitational Matt Fitzpatrick dropped a cool Insta post where he tagged @Troon and his partners. Post was reshared via Troon social channels as well.
