TEAM TROON TIE
Team Troon members Justin Thomas and Gary Woodland ended up in a tie for 14th after both finished at 8-under overall in the Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, North Carolina, last week. Matt Kuchar wasn’t far behind, coming in tied for 23rd. Matt Fitzpatrick came in 35th, while Troon investor Rory McIlroy (a three-time winner of the event) finished tied for 47th. Alex Noren missed the cut. Kuchar, who currently ranks 13th in PGA Tour scoring average, will be the lone Team Troon representative at this week’s AT&T Byron Nelson in Texas. The others – especially defending champion Justin Thomas – will be prepping for the season’s second major, the PGA Championship being played at Oak Hill in Rochester, New York, May 18-21.
Colin Montgomerie continues to gain positive momentum on PGA CHAMPIONS. Following up a fifth place finish the prior week at the Insperity Invitational in Texas, he carded a tie for 10th at this past weekend’s Mitsubishi Electric Classic at TPC Sugarloaf in Duluth, Georgia. The impressive finishes over the past two weeks have elevated him to 16th in the 2023 Charles Schwab Cup standings. Up next for Monty is the Regions Tradition in Birmingham, Alabama, this weekend.
Yealimi Noh heads to the East Coast this weekend for the LPGA’s Cognizant Founders Cup at Upper Montclair Country Club in New Jersey. It marks the first of four LPGA events being played in the Garden State over the next six week, including the ShopRite LPGA Classic presented by Acer June 7-11 at the Troon-managed Seaview Hotel and Golf Club in Galloway Township near Atlantic City.
