Justin Thomas apologises after club toss

Justin Thomas

World No.7 Justin Thomas apologised on Twitter after releasing his
driver following an errant tee shot at the WGC-Mexico Championship.


The 23-year-old, who held the lead going into the final round, was three-over-par for the day when his frustrations got the better of him and he let go of his club on the par-5 11th hole in disgust.

The shaft of the club hit someone in the gallery, but not hard enough to cause any harm and immediately afterwards, Thomas went over to apologise.

And, after receiving some criticism by broadcasters and on social media, Thomas addressed what he’d done.

Rory McIlroy, who was in the final group alongside Thomas, Rickie Fowler and Luke Donald then took the opportunity to wind up the young American.

But Thomas had the last laugh at McIlroy’s expense.
