Matt Kuchar and Alex Noren were in the field representing Team Troon and both would put together fine play. It was Matt Kuchar who would finish low Team Troon member as he was on the first page of the leaderboard for nearly the entire event and finish T3 after two weekend rounds in the 60’s. Alex Noren would finish T15 with a four round total of -7. Solid playing Matt and Alex!

The Masters

Many state this week is the best week in golf with Augusta National playing host to the Masters and also kicking off the Pre-Masters festivities with the Augusta National Women’s Amateur (congrats to Callaway staffer Rose Zhang, who captured the title in dramatic fashion) and the Drive Chip & Putt finals aired on Golf Channel (congrats to all of the amazing winners). It’s hard to argue against that statement. Now the attention turns to the Masters and the first Major of 2023. Team Troon members in the field include reigning PGA Champion Justin Thomas, reigning US Open champion Matt Fitzpatrick, Gary Woodland, Alex Noren and Bubba Watson. The week kicks off with the Champions Dinner on Tuesday night, the Par 3 competition on Wednesday afternoon (aired on ESPN 3-5pm EST), then four rounds of Major excitement Thursday through Sunday. For those that plan on viewing in “two screen” fashion’ offers some great live streaming of the action (including Amen Corner, featured groups and more).
