Report

Troy Merritt started the week strongly with an incredible opening round of 62, and he would carry that lead throughout the week to secure his second PGA Tour title.

The Iowa-born man had one previous victory, at the Quicken Loans National three years earlier, and he was challenged down the stretch on Sunday.

Billy Horschel, Richie Werenski and Tom Lovelady finished just one shot back, with J.T. Poston and Brian Gay also in close order. Gay shot the low round of the day, firing in a 65 to move into the top six come the end of the tournament’s action.

Hunter Mahan and Robert Streb both started the final day of the Barbasol Championship on the same score as eventual winner Merritt, but neither could bring their best on Sunday afternoon.

Mahan only managed a 1-under-par round, while Streb stayed at his starting position of 18-under, finishing five shots back and in a tie for 10th.

Mention a European country, and Matt will tell you which resorts make the National Club Golfer Top 100s: European Resorts list. He might even throw in who designed the golf course and how many rooms the hotel has got at each one…

Matt got into the game of golf from a young age, following his old man to the local golf club. He fell for the sport, and now can’t seem to go a day without thinking about how to improve his game (Thanks Dad!). Matt has been a member of Howley Hall GC in Leeds since 2020, and is just about managing to maintain a single-figure handicap. He likes to remind people that he once broke 75, but won’t tell people that it was on a shortened course during the winter.

He moved to Leeds after graduating from the University of Central Lancashire with a First Class Honours degree in Sports Journalism. Matt joined NCG after almost five years travelling the world with the Professional Squash Association, working on events in all four corners of the globe.

Matt currently plays a Cobra King LTDx driver and RadSpeed 3-wood. TaylorMade monopolise the rest of his bag, with a SIM UDI, M5 irons and both Milled Grind and HI-TOE wedges, along with a Monza Redline putter. He uses a Vice Pro Plus golf ball, because he’s a bit different…

Away from golf, Matt is a Manchester United fan, and a keen runner, having ran the Rob Burrow Leeds Marathon (his first and possibly last), in May 2023.
