The PGA TOUR moved from a four week stint in Florida for the next WGC event on the schedule…the WGC Dell Technologies Match Play at Austin Country Club. We had three Team Troon members in the field with Matt Fitzpatrick, Justin Thomas and Matt Kuchar. The latter two of which were battling it out in the same initial Group (which initially had the moniker the “Group of Death” with Kuchar, Thomas, Oosthuizen and defending champion Kisner). Kuchar came out of that group and went on to beat hometown favorite Jordan Speith 2&1 in the Round of 16 and then Brian Harman (also 2&1) in the Quarterfinals, to make it into the “Final Four.” He would fall short of making it into the final match falling to another hometown favorite in Scottie Scheffler, but would defeat Victor Perez in the consolation match to claim a solid 3rd place finish.
Fun fact: Kuchar excels at match play, specifically at the WGC-Match Play! In this event alone he has eight top 10 finishes in 11 starts including on victory, one runner up and two third place finishes (for nearly $5M in WGC Match Play earnings).
- 3rd – Matt Kuchar (defeated Victor Perez in consolation match)
- T18 (2 Points) – Matt Fitzpatrick
- T41 (1 Point) – Justin Thomas
Congrats again Kuch… on the solid week…from all of us at Troon!
Matt Kuchar’s Troon logo’ed bag got a lot of airtime due to his stellar play…as did Matt Fitzpatrick’s all Troon bag during Group Play…as seen via this Golfweek story. Speaking of Matt Fitzpatrick, he shared a post to his Instagram and Twitter followers featuring his cool All Troon Bag. Thank you Matt!
