JUSTIN THOMAS WON THE PGA CHAMPIONSHIP in a three-hole playoff with Will Zalatoris. Thomas started the ultimate spherical seven photographs behind 54-hole chief Mito Pereira. He completed with a 3-under 67 and watched all of the leaders come again to him.
Thomas’ victory, his second PGA and second main, appeared unbelievable. However the entire match appeared a bit off, even when it did hold everybody in suspense to the top.
This PGA sort of lurched alongside everyday … sizzling climate, cool climate, wind, extra wind, low rounds, excessive rounds, extra excessive rounds, Rory McIlroy up then down (repeat), and the identical with Tiger Woods, together with a WD earlier than Sunday’s last spherical. His physique could not take any extra of Southern Hills.
Sentimental favourite and frontrunner Mito Pereira grimly held on to almost the top on Sunday, with an opportunity to seize his first PGA Tour title and first main victory on the ultimate gap — if he might make a par. Alas, his drive leaked into the creek to the appropriate of the green.
“I believed I used to be nervous the primary day,” Mito stated. “Then I believed I used to be nervous the second day. Then I believed I used to be nervous on the third day. However the fourth day was horrible. I imply, this morning was powerful.”
He added, “I simply performed it by. And really had a one-shot lead on 18 and that was fairly good and unhappy to hit it within the water. I want I might do it once more. Simply good recollections for this match. Simply taking out the 18th.”
Thomas’ shot-making was masterful within the playoff. Bones, his caddie, stated he did not miss a shot. (That is the best way I noticed it from my sofa.) Like somebody within the golf media stated a bit earlier, Justin regarded like he was the one one having enjoyable on the market.
