Matt Fitzpatrick and Justin Thomas continued their second week of stellar play in the U.K. leading Team Troon with strong finishes in The Open Championship. Matt would lead Team Troon with a -3 and T26 finish. Justin will follow with a T40 finish. Congrats to both for your strong finish and congrats to Colin Morikawa for his 2nd major.
- T26 Matt Fitzpatrick: 71-69-67-70: -3
- T40 Justin Thomas: 72-67-71-69: -1
Cheyenne Woods teamed up with Mariah Stackhouse in the LPGA TOUR Team event: the Dow Great Lakes Bay Invitational at Midland CC. They would both play well, shooting -3 after two rounds… but it would be just one shot shy of making it to weekend play.
- Cheyenne Woods / Mariah Stackhouse: 69-68: -3
Coming Up This Week:
The next PGA TOUR event on the schedule is the 3M Open in the “Land of 10,000 Lakes”- ie Minnesota. Gary Woodland is the lone Team Troon member in the field this week. Go Gary!

Major season continues this week with the Senior Open Championship at Sunningdale Golf Course (Old Course) in Berkshire, England. It’s the third major in the last five weeks after the Bridgestone SENIOR PLAYERS and the U.S. Senior Open and Colin Montgomerie and his ALL TROON bag will be in the field. Go Colin!
As shared last week, we created a cool custom golf bag for Matt Fitzpatrick that was created in a collaboration with Matt’s favourite football club is his hometown Sheffield United Football Club. He received a ton of social buzz even before The Open Championship started. With Daniel Rapaport (28K followers), and even The Open Championship (551K Followers) tweeting about Matt’s Bag before round one began:
Matt followed it with great RT’s and a couple of tweets/social pushes himself to his 89.7K followers …including giving a hard time to his caddy Billy (whom doesn’t share the same affinity for team SUFC).
Have a great week…thank you for all that you do…and GO TEAM TROON!
