PGA TOUR- Genesis Scottish Open
This week, the best players in the world crossed “the pond” and played in the Genesis Scottish Open at the Renaissance Club. A big congratulations to Troon Investor/Supporter Rory McIlroy for winning the event! It was a great week of competitive golf and exciting to watch as it came down to Rory’s birdie on 18 to secure the Championship. Team Troon was in the field as well and it was Gary Woodland who lead the team in low scoring for the event as well as carded “red numbers” all week despite the wind and weather conditions that was present in Scotland. Team Troon results as follows. Congrats Rory, Gary and JT!
- T25 Gary Woodland: 70-68-66-71 = 275 / -5
- T60 Justin Thomas: 68-69-69-75 = 279 / -1
