Scottsdale, Arizona, United States: Troon has welcomed 12-time PGA Tour winner and two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson to Team Troon – a collection of top international golf talent representing the Troon brand throughout professional golf.

Watson joins PGA Tour golfers Justin Thomas, Gary Woodland, and Matt Kuchar of the United States, Alex Noren of Sweden, Matthew Fitzpatrick of England, PGA Tour Champions golfer and World Golf Hall of Famer Colin Montgomerie of Scotland, and LPGA Tour/Ladies European Tour player Cheyenne Woods as members of Team Troon.

Watson will unveil his Troon-branded golf bag at the QBE Shootout (December 10-12), held at Troon-managed Tiburón Golf Club in Naples, Florida, and carry it throughout the 2021-22 and 2022-23 seasons.

“We are proud to welcome Bubba to Team Troon,” said Tim Schantz, President and Chief Executive Officer at Troon, an Executive Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.

“Bubba is a global ambassador for golf and, like Troon, is committed to growing the game through supporting junior and women’s golf. His philanthropic efforts through the Bubba Watson Foundation and openness about mental health continue to help those in need and is to be applauded,” added Schantz.

As part of being on Team Troon, 43-year-old Watson will collaborate on social media campaigns in co-operation with Troon and Troon-managed facilities around the world and take part in select Troon-sponsored events.

“I feel like most golfers have heard the Troon name but not many realise how influential Troon is within the golf industry,” said Watson. “They are best-in-class at what they do and their reach and influence on the game of golf is beyond impressive. I look forward to collaborating with Troon to help grow the game that I love so much.”

Currently 65th on the Official World Golf Ranking, Watson recorded five top-10 finishes during the 2020-21 PGA Tour season, highlighted by a tied fourth at the ZOZO Championship and made 17 cuts in 22 starts.

He is one of only six players to qualify for the FedEx Cup Play-offs in each of the first 15 seasons of the FedEx Cup era.

Watson’s new book Up & Down, Victories and Struggles in the Course of Life, was released this month on and was written with 11-time New York Times best-selling author Don Yaeger.

Troon-managed or affiliated facilities host 17 professional golf events across nine professional Tours around the world. Including high-level amateur events and qualifying tournaments, Troon-managed facilities host more than 30 elite events.
