The 2016 Northern Trust Open, the 42nd event of the PGA TOUR, promised and delivered a riveting game this past weekend. The world’s best golfers competed at the Riviera Country Club, the “no nonsense golf course” for requiring players to “play every club in his bag and every shot in his game,” as described by golf analyst Johnny Miller. The leaderboard filled with familiar names, such as Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson, Adam Scott, Marc Leishman and Justin Rose, and—from Ryan Moore’s exhilarating 163-yard hole-in-one to newcomer Jason Kokrak’s lead and fall— quite a few memorable moments roused a range of emotions.
The tournament came to a close on Sunday, February 21, when The Agency once again hosted the VIP lounge, The Green Room, where guests mingled and enjoyed views of the 10th hole. Guests toasted with wine from Napa Valley’s William Hill Estate Winery and played rounds of cornhole. Flaunting The Agency spirit, we donned and passed out our signature red hats, as well as custom Pro V1s, and ball markers provided by our partner Giveback Homes. The Agency’s CEO Mauricio Umansky also competed alongside celebrity teammate Mark Wahlberg in the Pro-Am tournament this past Wednesday.
The final round closed with Bubba Watson ultimately capturing the trophy with a one-stroke lead, his second win at the Northern Trust Open, and ninth on the PGA TOUR. Check out more photos from Sunday’s event below.
