Sepp Straka had an amazing year on the PGA Tour wearing SQAIRZ. As we come to the end of 2022, we are taking a look back on three of our favorite Sepp highlights of this year.
3. Getting tapped by Tiger in the Hero World Challenge
In our number 3 spot— and the most recent—we loved when Sepp got “Tiger tapped” in the Hero World Challenge. The tournament is hosted by Tiger Woods, and features 20 of the world’s top-ranked golfers to play at Albany Golf Course in Albany, Bahamas.
The event took place November 28th through December 4th, 2022 and is a benefit for the Tiger Woods Foundation. Tiger had plantar fasciitis at the time of the tournament and he selected Sepp Straka to take his place. Though Straka may not have won, he came out hot and took an early lead wearing his SQAIRZ.
(PS - Tiger, if the plantar fasciitis is still hurting you, hit us up!)
2. His edge-of-your-seat run at The FedEx Cup Playoffs
Coming in 2nd Place, Straka had an incredible run at The FedEx Cup Playoffs in August. In his third round at the FedEx St.Jude Championship in Memphis at TPC Southwind, he finished 2nd at 12 under.
J.J. Spaun was in 1st at 13 under; and Will Zalatoris, Cameron Smith, and Trey Mullinax were tied for 3rd at 11 under. In the 4th and final round, he had a neck-and-neck run during a three-hole playoff with Will Zalatoris.
While Straka did not clinch the victory, his second place standing progressed him to have his first appearance in the FedEx Cup Championship.
1. Sepp’s first Tour win at The Honda Classic
Coming in at number 1 for our 2022 highlights is Sepp’s win at The Honda Classic in February located at PGA National’s Championship Course in Palm Beach Gardens Florida!
His incredible birdie in the rain led him to his first (and SQAIRZ's first) Tour victory.
Sepp made birdies on three of his last five holes, played the Bear Trap in 1 under and shot 4-under (66) for the day, totaling 10 under. At age 28, he is the first Austrian-born player to win on the PGA TOUR.
SQAIRZ is so proud of Sepp and all of his accomplishments this year. These were just our top 3 favorites, but there were many other amazing moments that we loved. Here’s to an another great year with Sepp Straka in SQAIRZ!
