The 150th Open Championship returned to historic St. Andrews for the final major of 2022. Team Troon had two Team Troon players playing into the weekend in Matt Fitzpatrick and Justin Thomas. Matt Fitzpatrick ended up as low Team Troon member with a Top 25 finish and four round total of -9. Justin Thomas would finish at -2 for a T53 finish. Matt’s second round 66 combined with his Thursday and Friday pairing with Tiger Woods would get Matt and his all Troon golf bag plenty of television time during the early rounds (more on his golf bag below). Team Troon results at the Open Championship is as follows:
- T21 Matt Fitzpatrick = 72-66-69-72 = -9
- T53 Justin Thomas = 72-70-72-70= -2
PGA TOUR – Barracuda Championship
Alex Noren was an alternate for the Open Championship…and on Tuesday of tournament week made the decision to fly the United States to compete in the Barracuda Championship. His decision would bode well as he nearly won! He came in second in the event that features a Stableford scoring system with 42 points (one shy of winner Chez Reavie). Not only racking up some miles along the way but also racking up some valuable Fed Ex Points. Good playing Alex.
- 2nd Alex Noren 4-12-12-14 = +42
Yealimi Noh teamed up with A Lim Kim for the Dow Great Lakes Invitational in Midland Michigan. This event features a unique two player team format. Team Noh/Kim would play well, finish at -16 and grab a Top 10 Finish. Congrats Yealimi!
- T10: Yealimi Noh: 69-62-69-64 = 264 -16.
Its Major Week for the PGA Champions with the Senior Open Championship to be contested at Gleaneagles Hotel (Kings Course). Colin Montgomerie and his all Troon bag will be in the field competing for this major title. Go Colin!
In sticking with a major theme, Yealimi Noh and the LPGA Tour head to France for the Amundi Evian Championship at Evian Resort Golf Club. Go Low Yealimi and build off last week’s T10!
The rest of Team Troon is taking a most major week off while the PGA TOUR heads to the Land of 10,000 Lakes for the 3M Open.
