To The World of Troon,
Gary Woodland led Team Troon this week with a solid T11 finish in the 3M Open in Blaine, Minnesota. Woodland would go into the final round standing in a tie for second place after round three (following three rounds in the 60’s). He ended up closing with a 72 that put him five back of eventual winner Cameron Champ. Regardless a solid week for Woodland.
- T11 Gary Woodland: 69-66-67-72: -10
PGA Champions Tour
Colin Montgomerie and his all Troon Bag would be back in the U.K. for the Senior Open Championship Presented by Rolex at Sunningdale Golf Club, Sunningdale, Berkshire, England. Colin would play solid all week long and post a three under, four round total to finish T11. Great playin’ Colin.
- T11 Colin Montgomerie: 68-72-68-69: -3

Troon On CBS – A Celebration of PGA Professionals
While not specifically Team Troon related, we know many of you may have caught that cool feature that aired on CBS called “A Celebration of PGA Professionals”. In that feature, fifteen PGA Members, including Troon’s Founder and Chairman Dana Garmany, were featured in an hour-long nationwide special, around the award winners (Dana won the inaugural Golf Executive of the Year honor). Included in the Troon related segment/feature were a number of great shots of Troon locations from around the world, interviews with Troon Executive team members and great interviews with Troon PGA Members including, but not limited to: Steve Outlaw (Wickenburg Ranch), Ryan Walls (Ballenisles) Ellie McManus (Whirlwind), Garrett Wallace (Troon CC). Well done to all involved. Your interviews were great.
For those that missed it, there are two ways to check out the segment:
- View on Troon Social Channels… including on Troon You Tube: CLICK HERE TO VIEW (and while there be sure to subscribe to Troon YouTube)
- CBS will be broadcasting an “Encore Presentation” TONIGHT of “A Celebration of PGA Professionals” (Monday, July 26) in primetime at 8 p.m. ET on their cable outlet, CBS Sports Network. Set your DVR, tune in (or see #1 above and watch on Troon social. It turned out great.
Have a great week…thank you for all that you do…GO TEAM TROON!
