Update from Last Week
Team Troon had an exciting week last week with FOUR Team Troon players playing on the winning US Team at the Presidents Cup at Royal Melbourne in Australia. Matt Kuchar, Justin Thomas, Gary Woodland and Patrick Cantlay all had key roles in the winning score of 16-14 to have the US retain the Presidents Cup. Matt Kuchar would ultimately roll in the clinching putt. The Americans were leading 15-13 and simply needed one more half-point. Kuchar clinched it by winning the 17th hole with a birdie. Other Team Troon highlights included Justin Thomas with a team high point total of 3.5 points earned/won and Patrick Cantlay with a key Sunday singles win to earn 3 points for the team in total.
