PGA TOUR – PGA Championship
WOW! What a week for Team Troon and Justin Thomas. JT came from seven back to get into a playoff, emerging victorious in the playoff over Will Zalatoris to claim his second major victory (the other one also being a PGA Championship) and was his 15th PGA TOUR victory. Fun fact: Justin Thomas is a son of PGA Member in Mike Thomas. Justin’s Grandfather was also a member of the PGA of America. As such, it is fitting that his first two major victories came in the PGA Championship. Congrats to JT on a truly epic “major” victory!
The entire week was certainly a great week for Team Troon. Matt Fitzpatrick played well all week, was in the final group and ultimately finished T5 at -3, two shots out of the playoff. Bubba Watson went low with a second round 63 and would ultimately finish T30 at +3. Matt Kuchar and Gary Woodland played well into the weekend and both finished T34.
The entire week, and specifically the Sunday Final Round was great for Team Troon…and Troon brand exposure as well: Matt Fitzpatrick and his all Troon, PGA of America inspired bag was in the final group. As such he and his bag received a ton of airtime. Obviously JT winning was huge for him and Team Troon. Also the Troon logo captured a ton of airtime via placement on Mike Thomas’ cap and shirt (captured in the broadcast in nice fashion during the “victory hug”). Lastly, for those watching the broadcast, it was cool to see Troon’s Director of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion in Kendall Murphy and his fellow Troon associates featured in the PGA of America commercial.
