Coming Up Next Week…
PGA TOUR – PGA Championship
The second major of the year is coming up in Tulsa Oklahoma for the PGA Championship at Southern Hills. Southern Hills has hosted the most PGA Championships of any other course and the field is a strong one. This year’s field includes 14 PGA Champions, 32 Major Champions and 3 Ryder Cup Captains, also features the top 70 players who have earned the most PGA Championship points through the 2022 Wells Fargo Championship and the top-20 finishers from the 2022 PGA Professional Championship. All six PGA Tour Team Troon players are in the field including: Justin Thomas, Matt Fitzpatrick, Gary Woodland, Matt Kuchar, Bubba Watson and Alex Noren.
Current odds for Team Troon members to win the PGA Championship from PointsBet are as follows:
Matt Fitzpatrick has an all Troon Bag we customize for “the Majors”. For the PGA Championship we were inspired by the many Troon affiliated PGA Professionals, members and apprentices that are dedicated to growing the game of golf and dedicated to growing our course/clients’ businesses. To that end, this major bag is taking inspiration from PGA of America colors and also includes the factoid that we are the largest employer of PGA professionals, assistants and the like. Below is a sneak peak of the bag Matt will be donning this week.
To that end, THANK YOU to all of the PGA Members and apprentices in the World of Troon. Thank you for all you do each and every day!
Speaking of Matt Fitzpatrick’s all Troon Bag. His fine play at the Well Fargo garnered a lot of TV time for him and the silver version of his All Troon bag. In addition, the bag was included in his recent Instagram post he shared to his 103K Followers. Thank you Matt!
Thank you to JC Wright from The Boulders that caught a nice Troon logo drop on Gary Woodland’s Golf Bag. This was captured during one of PGA Championship’s Instagram posts during Tiger’s practice round on Monday. It was posted that day to the PGA Championship Instagram channel that boasts 212K followers. Thank you for “sharing” JC.
Enjoy PGA Championship Week…and go Team Troon!
