Team Troon On Tour: Matt Fitzpatrick Wins the U.S. Open!
PGA TOUR – U.S. Open
CONGRATULATIONS to Matt Fitzpatrick! Matt captured the United States Open championship at The Country Club in Brookline, MA in dramatic fashion… hitting 17 out of 18 greens, making clutch birdies down the stretch and finishing with an epic bunker shot to the middle of the 18th green to solidify a four round total -6 and a one shot victory over world #1 Scottie Scheffler and Will Zalatoris. Matt was in the last group of the final round, as he was for the PGA Championship last month. As such, his U.S. Open inspired Troon bag (that also featured two logos from longtime area Troon clubs/clients on the water ball pockets: Lake of Isles and Ocean Edge) received a TON of television coverage on NBC, USA, and Peacock.
Fitzpatrick’s U.S. Open championship is the fourth major championship victory for a Team Troon Member and the second in a row, following Justin Thomas’ PGA Championship win in May (his second major) and Gary Woodland’s 2019 U.S. Open win at Pebble Beach Golf Links. Gary Woodland would play well in this year’s version of the U.S. Open and ended up finishing in the Top Ten. Justin Thomas would have a Top 40 finish this week as well.
- 1st: Matt Fitzpatrick: 68-70-68-68 = 274 / -6
- T10: Gary Woodland: 69-73-69-69 = 280 / Even
- T37: Justin Thomas: 69-72-72-74 = 287 / +7
Making this more historic was the fact that Fitzpatrick’s first major championship came at the same venue where he won the U.S. Amateur championship in 2013. Here he was captured with both the U.S. Amateur trophy and the U.S. Open trophy shortly after his victory:
Congrats again Matt Fitzpatrick on your U.S. Open victory!
LPGA TOUR Meijer LPGA Classic
Team Troon member Yealimi Noh was in the field at Meijer LPGA Classic for Simply Give. She would put together four solid rounds to finish -6 for the tournament and T56. Congrats Yealimi on a solid week!
- Yealimi Noh: 70-70-70-72: 282 / -6
PGA TOUR – Travelers Championship
The PGA TOUR stays in the Northeast for the Travelers Championship. Justin Thomas is in the field representing Team Troon and is playing quite well. To that end current odds for JT to The Travelers from PointsBet is as follows:
It’s a Major week for the LPGA Tour as Yealimi Noh is headed to Congressional Country Club for the Women’s PGA Championship. Go low this week Yealimi!
PGA TOUR Champions
It is also a Major week for the PGA TOUR Champions as Colin Montgomerie and his all Troon bag will be strolling the fairways of Saucon Valley CC for the U.S. Senior Open. Colin will be building off his previous major Top 10 at the most recent PGA Tour Champions Major, the KitchenAid Senior PGA. Go low Colin!

It was really cool that Troon investor and supporter in Rory McIlroy would hang around the 18th green (following his Top Five finish) to congratulate Matt Fitzpatrick. The PGA TOUR caught it and dropped this tweet to their 2.7M followers (that we RT’d from @Troon)
