Team Troon continued with another busy week…this one being on that was a combo “Post/Current/Pre Major week” on the PGA, PGA Champions and LPGA Tour, respectfully. On the PGA Tour we had Justin Thomas, Gary Woodland and Matt Kuchar playing in the “post major:” the Charles Schwab Challenge at Colonial Country Club (coming off of the PGA Championship). Colin Montgomerie was participating in the second major on the PGA Champions Tour in the PGA Senior Championship at Southern Hills in Tulsa, Oklahoma and Cheyenne Woods, is prepping for a major, this week’s US Women’s Open at the Olympic Club in San Francisco, California.

PGA Champions Tour
As stated above, it was “Major week” for the PGA Champions Tour and Colin Montgomerie was competing amongst a strong field in the KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship at Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Congrats again to Troon SVP and PGA of America President in Jim Richerson (and the entirety of the PGA of America) on the second “major” in consecutive weeks. Colin unfortunately missed weekend play by just two shots shooting 73-76 (two shy of the +7 cut line).
Its Major week for the LPGA Tour and Cheyenne Woods is in the field at Olympic. As shared in the 5/17 Team Troon on Tour, Cheyenne was the medalist at the Spring Lake, New Jersey US Open qualifying, where she overcame an early first round double to win the qualifier going away. A cool story on her qualifying was shared by our publication partners in Golfweek. CLICK HERE to check it out…and good luck this week Cheyenne! The WORLD OF TROON will be pulling for you!
The PGA Tour moves from Texas up to Ohio for Jack’s tournament in The Memorial. All PGA Tour Team Troon ambassadors are in the field including:
- Justin Thomas
- Matt Kuchar
- Alex Noren
- Matt Fitzpatrick
- Gary Woodland
For those that missed it, a cool moment happened this week that caught the attention of social media when Team Troon member Justin Thomas gave recent Monday qualifier Michael Visacki a check to help him continue to pursue his dream of playing on Tour after the two played together. Really cool moment…
