Pieters RangeGoats Team Site Singapore Recap image

All things considered, Singapore was the stage for plenty of positives for RangeGoats Golf Club. And while the team didn’t successfully defend its team title from 2023, its recent play will likely set up a nice run as the second half of the season begins.

The team finished seventh in Singapore but just four shots off the podium and exits Sentora Golf Course seventh in the season-long team standings with plenty of time to make a jump. With a break in the schedule before heading back to the United States, RangeGoats GC members will have time to fine tune their games before the final stretch.

Thomas Pieters once again led the way for RangeGoats GC. One week after finishing a team-high T14 in Adelaide – including shooting 10 under on the weekend – Pieters flashed nicely to earn a T5 finish in Singapore, just four shots behind winner Brooks Koepka.

Pieters has clearly found something in his game. He started the season with finishes of T43, T30, T37 and T48. But in the last three weeks, Pieters has hit another gear with results of T9, T14 and this week’s T5. He has risen to 22nd in the season-long individual standings and is poised to climb even further. Pieters will get some extra work by competing in the Belgium Open in two weeks.

Teammate Peter Uihlein was solid in Singapore, finishing T22 and had his best round of the week on Sunday, when scoring conditions were the toughest. His 3-under 68 was a credit to his determination as scores were climbing, and he will exit Singapore with positive vibes.

Matthew Wolff wasn’t far behind. Enjoying a successful bounce-back season following a tough 2023, Wolff continued his impressive play through two rounds when he was 9 under.

“I got off to a good start, making some putts,” Wolff said Saturday. “I just kind of gave myself a lot of opportunities. But it was fun. We had a good group out there. We all kind of played decent. Kind of just fed off of each other.”

But a 5-over 76 on Sunday derailed Wolff’s chances to contend. He still finished a respectable T30 and is 17th in the season standings, the best position of any of his teammates.

Captain Bubba Watson opened with a gritty even-par 71 on Friday but slipped on Saturday with a 6-over 77 to fall well back. Not one to give in, the two-time Masters champion shot 4-under 67 in the final round to end on a positive note.

With the next event in Houston in June, RangeGoats GC will look to get back on solid footing and position itself for a run in the second half of the year.
