Team Troon On Tour: Matt Fitzpatrick Wins RBC Heritage!
PGA TOUR – RBC Heritage
What a great week it was in Harbour Town for #TeamTroon! A big congratulations to Matt Fitzpatrick on his second PGA Tour win at the RBC Heritage as well as career low on Saturday, 63! After all four rounds were complete and he signed at -17, it came down to a three hole playoff against RBC Heritage defending champion Jordan Spieth for the win. When the third hole approached it was Fitzpatrick’s 9-iron from the fairway that landed him a foot from the hole to tap in and claim the victory. Fitzpatrick’s family has been vacationing to Harbour Town since he was six years old, only to make his victory more sweet.
Fellow TeamTroon members played great as well. Complete Team Troon scores are as follows
- 1 Matt Fitzpatrick: 66-70-63-68 = 267 / -17
- T19 Matt Kuchar: 68-67-68-71 = 274 / -10
- T25 Justin Thomas: 69-68-72-66 = 275 / -9
- T31 Gary Woodland: 69-68-70-70 = 277 / -7
LPGA Tour – Lotte Championship
The LPGA made their annual stop to Hawaii for the Lotte Championship on the Island of Oahu. While this year’s event was contested at Hoakalei Country Club, a fun Troon factoid was that the Troon-managed Kapolei Golf Club hosted the Lotte Championship in April of 2021 (and crowned Lydia Ko as the champion). This year #TeamTroon Yealimi Noh was in the field. She shot a second round 70 to get into the weekend and would finish with a four round total of 279 to finish 72nd.
- 72nd Yealimi Noh: 76-70-74-77 = 297 / +9
PGA TOUR – Zurich Classic
The PGA TOUR is swinging down to TPC Louisiana for a two man team event. Matt Fitzpatrick will join up with his brother to form Team Fitzpatrick in this fun team format. Go Fitzy…and Fitzy!
PGA TOUR CHAMPIONS – Invited Celebrity Classic
The Champions tour is heading to Texas to play at Las Colinas Country Club in the Invited Celebrity Classic April 21-23. Team Troon’s Colin Montgomerie will be in the field competing for the title and valuable Schwab Cup points.
FROM THE WEEK PRIOR – THE MASTERS
With smells of fresh cut grass and pimento cheese, the yearly trip to Augusta, Georgia was yet again amazing to watch. Despite the rain delay on Saturday, Troon Members Matt Fitzpatrick and Gary Woodland played solid all week and stayed in hunt through Sunday to both finish in the top 15. Great playing Matt and Gary!
- T10 Matt Fitzpatrick: 70-72-72-70 = 284 / -4
- T14 Gary Woodland: 68-72-73-72 = 285 / -3
