It was an exciting week for Team Troon with the WM Phoenix Open down the street from the Scottsdale Offices. Some highlights are below:
- Gary, Matt & Amy: The week started off in cool fashion with two Team Troon members (Gary Woodland & Matt Kuchar) sharing in a truly special moment with Amy Bockerstette. Gary and Matt played the infamous 16th hole with Amy Bockerstette from Special Olympics Arizona (Amy recently became the first collegiate golfer to compete with an intellectual disability such as Down Syndrome). She played great and the video went viral.
That kind of moment was truly special… shows how golf is GOOD… and reinforces that GOOD PEOPLE are on #TEAMTROON
- Tuesday evening we had Justin Thomas, Matt Kuchar, Gary Woodland, Alex Noren and Cheyenne Woods swing by the Scottsdale office to learn more about what we do (and to capture some photos/video content). Check out some of the behind the scenes photos on the Troon Facebook Page or @Troon Insta page
- Three of the four members of Team Troon were sporting Troon logos on their bags at WM Phoenix Open…see in round photos are below (more to follow)
- All of them had a great tournament with Team Troon finishing near the top. As Dana stated in the Sunday email, 2 of the 3 players that were in the Final Group on Sunday are on Team Troon (Matt & Justin)
