Two Team Troon members were in the field in Justin Thomas and Matt Fitzpatrick. Thomas would end up leading Team Troon with a solid -14, T5 finish. His final round 64 tied the lowest final round score in the event, earning him a lot of TV time on Golf Channel yesterday. Fitzpatrick would finish -10 after two solid weekend rounds of 68-69 to place T12. Complete Team Troon results are as follows:
- T5 Justin Thomas, 67-72-71-64: -14
