PGA Tour – Tour Championship
This week’s Team Troon on Tour follows the FedEx Cup finale and the Tour Championship at East Lake outside of Atlanta. One that was filled with excitement and drama as Troon investor and supporter in Rory McIlroy came from behind in brilliant fashion to capture the 2022 Tour Championship and a record setting third FedEx Cup title. Congrats Rory! Congrats is also in order for Team Troon members Justin Thomas and Matt Fitzpatrick, whom were in the final 30 of the Tour Championship. Low Team Troon member this past week was Justin Thomas who played solid all week to finish T5 at -17 (just four back of Rory). Matt Fitzpatrick would start off hot with a first round 64 to post a four round total of T15 at -11. Congrats to Rory, Justin and Matt on a great season finale and great year as well!
- T5 Justin Thomas: 67-68-63-68 = 266 / -17
- T15 Matt Fitzpatrick: 64-71-67-70= 272 / -11
The LPGA Tour was in Canada for the CP Women’s Open at Ottawa Hunt & Golf Club. Team Troon member Yealimi Noh was “in the hunt” herself after opening the event with two rounds in the 60’s. Yealimi would follow that with a 68-70 finish and would have a great week shooting a four round -10 to earn a top 20 finish. Congrats Yealimi on a solid week and solid finish!
- T17 Yealimi Noh: 67-69-68-70 = 274/ -10
The Sentry Tournament of Champions at the Troon-managed Kapalua, recently announced an extension of the event sponsorship of Sentry Insurance (through 2035), an increased purse ($15 Million, up from $8.2 Million) and a updates to the tournament qualifications to include both PGA TOUR winners and the Top 30 in FedEx Cup points. Team Troon members who are qualified for this calendar year opening event on the Plantation Course at Kapalua (thus far) include Justin Thomas and Matt Fitzpatrick. The latter of which will make his first visit to Hawaii to start the new year off on the Plantation Course. There are still a full slate of fall events (including the Fortinet Championship this month at the Troon-managed Silverado Resort), so look for more Team Troon members to earn qualification into the Sentry TOC at stunning Kapalua!
Congrats again Justin, Matt, Yealimi and Rory! Have a great week. Go Team Troon!
