Congrats to Justin Thomas on taking down the 2017 PGA Championship! He is now the newest first time major winner. With three wins already this season it was going to be a success, but this cherry on top makes it one to remember forever.
JT put together a wonderful final round that was a bit sloppy at the end, but had plenty of precision when it mattered most. The cushion on 18 was crucial as it allowed him to play that super difficult hole a little differently.
The PGA is a great tournament for him to win with his father and grandfather being PGA professionals. That makes this a storybook ending that the media will eat up. It was awesome to see his parents overwhelmed with joy at his victory. Also seeing Jordan, Rickie, and some other players stick around until the end was cool. These guys want to beat each other, but aren’t afraid to support their friends when they are in contention.
Well played, Justin!
