Matt Fitzpatrick and his “All Troon bag” got plenty of airtime this week during the World Golf Championships – HSBC Champions in Shanghai China as he was at the top of the leaderboard most of the week. Ultimately Rory McIIroy would win in a playoff, but Fitzpatrick played great all week. He posted rounds of 66-67-70-71 to finish at -14 in 7th place. Just five shots shy of a spot in the playoff that Rory would eventually win over Xander. Great playing Matt!
7th – Matt Fitzpatrick, -14
Over in Bermuda, Alex Noren also had a great week finishing in the Top 15. Noren strung together four solid rounds of 69-67-68-67 to finish at -13 and earn the T15 finish.
T15 Alex Noren, -13
Most of Team Troon is taking this week off…BUT be on the lookout for some cool social to coming out of Troon and Troon North on Saturday as Cheyenne Woods will be playing with our winners of our Troon Rewards sweepstakes executed over the summer. One lucky winner, Mr. Nick White and his foursome will enjoy a stay at Four Seasons Troon North and on Saturday and will have a great day at the club. The lucky winner and his group will enjoy lunch and dinner at Troon North, and a round on the Monument Course (accompanied by CADDIEMASTER caddies) with Cheyenne. Cheyenne will be arriving early to do a clinic with the Troon North Team and with Troon Cardholders! Be sure to RT/Share what comes from the day on Saturday!
Speaking of Social, it was cool to see Matt Fitzpatrick use #TeamTroon and #Troon on his Instagram post congratulating Rory on his victory. A) it speaks to Matt’s professionalism and the class act he is (congratulating the winner) and B) it was cool to see him organically use Troon hashtags along the way. Don’t worry Matt! Your next big win is on the horizon…and the World of Troon is pulling for you! #TeamTroon
Also in the Shareable realm was a cool RT from Cheyenne Woods on the recent #TrendingAtTroon that was packed full of exciting Troon info (introduced by the Troon L&D Team and including info on the 20 Troon courses honored with World Golf Awards – Dubai Hills, Royal Greens and more; our announcement of full management of Seven Canyons; Bayside Resort Golf Club’s recent award; Indian Wells Golf Resort’s Shots In the Night and more . Cheyenne’s RT went to her 61K Twitter followers:
Have a great week and GO #TeamTroon
