We are looking forward to seeing how the exciting qualifying events unfold and hosting the 2019 Finals at The Phoenician and Troon North.”

“We certainly couldn’t pull off events of this scale without the support of our loyal golf guests, Troon Cardholders, host venues and of course, our sponsors such as Callaway Golf, Golf Genius, Experience Scottsdale, AHEAD, Pepsi and Ship Sticks,” added Strauss. “To all involved, thank you, and we look forward to a great Troon Challenge season!”
