Team Troon on Tour: JT at Mayakoba, Matt Fitz at Els Club Dubai and Team Tiburón preps to host QBE Shootout
The PGA TOUR moved to Mexico last week for the Mayakoba Classic. Team Troon was represented by three players in the event, but the Team Troon headliner was Justin Thomas. JT strung together four solid rounds of 72-67-62-69 to finish at -14, six shy of eventual winner Victor Hovland.
- T12 Justin Thomas, – 14
Spotted at Els Club Dubai…
Matt Fitzpatrick is in Dubai and has been working on his game, practicing in preparation for the European Tour’s DP World Tour Championship. Over this past weekend, he did a cool activation at the club that included a clinic and Q&A with the top spending Troon Rewards members in the UAE. Additional content from his engagement will be forthcoming. On behalf of Troon and our Troon International Team…Thank you Matt! Go low in Dubai!
Patrick Cantlay dropped a nice Instagram post to his 35K followers related to our 2021 Troon Card program and how this provides golfers with a great way to experience Troon locations around the world…and Play More Golf! See below. He also tagged Kapalua and Indian Wells Golf Resort in the process. Thank you Patrick, for the shout out!

With the placement of the Troon logos on golf bags we oftentimes get some extra love on social or in marketing from Team Troon’s club/ball partners. That was the case recently in a cool Titleist post that included Justin Thomas’ bag and was pushed out via Titleist’ Instagram handle (which has an impressive 989k Followers). Thank you to Bradford Schaub, membership sales director (and Troon sales/mkt corporate intern “alum”) at Alpine Country Club in Utah, for sharing this cool inclusion.

Coming Up – PGA TOUR
The PGA Tour comes to Troon Turf once again with the QBE Shootout at Tiburón Golf Club in Naples December 9 – 13. This is the 20th consecutive year that this event will be played at Tiburón Golf Club and The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort, Naples. The QBE Shootout will welcome 16 of the top 50 ranked players in the world competing for the $3.6 million purse.
One Team Troon member is in the field in Matt Kuchar. Matt is paired up with Harris English. Together they reunite a team that has claimed victory at the Shootout in 2013 and 2016 (and they also had two runner up finishes in 2014 and 2015). The team of Kuchar/English hold the tournament record for the largest margin of victory when they lapped the field for a seven shot victory in 2013.
Good luck Team Tiburón! We know you will have a successful week! We will be tuning into Golf Channel to catch all of the action.
Another cool factoid…we in essence will be hosting back to back PGA TOUR events! Team Tiburón is hosting the QBE Shootout this week and the next event on the PGA TOUR schedule is the Sentry Tournament of Champions at Kapalua’s Plantation Course on Maui, January 6 – 10, 2021
Coming Up – European Tour
As stated above, Matt Fitzpatrick and his all Troon bag will be strolling the fairways in the European Tour’s DP World Tour Championship in Dubai.
Thank you for all you do!
Happy holidays. Stay Safe. Stay Healthy and Go Team Troon!
