WOW! What an exciting week for Team Troon! The week was certainly headlined with Justin Thomas earning his 13th PGATOUR Victory at the World Golf Championships-FedEx St. Jude Invitational in Memphis, Tennessee. He broke out of crowded leaderboard with a couple of late birdies to earn a three shot victory…his first since the Sentry Tournament of Champions at Kapalua and his third of the PGATOUR “wrap around/start/stop/restart year”. In the process, Justin reclaimed the title of World #1! It is pretty cool that the #1 Golfer in the World has Troon on his bag and is on Team Troon. Congrats JT from all of us at Troon!
Also worth noting Justin had Jim “Bones” Mackay on the bag (who was on Matt Fitzpatrick’s Bag the two weeks prior). That combined with Justin’s World Class play, let to some great national CBS Coverage of the Troon logo on Justin’s bag.
The entirety of Team Troon played well with Matt Fitzpatrick at one point being in 3rd place after three rounds. Here is how everyone on Team Troon did at the WGC St. Jude Invitational:
- 1st Justin Thomas, -13
- T6 Matt Fitzpatrick, -9
- T25 Matt Kuchar, -5
- T35 Patrick Cantlay, -3
- T57 Gary Woodland, +2
Alex Noren earned a Top 10 Finish at the Barracuda Championships, finishing T9 for +32 in the Stableford formatted event that took place in Truckee, California. His Top 10 finish earned him more valuable Fed Ex points climbing him from #82 to #77. Alex is playing well and congrats on the T10 Finish.
