Justin Thomas demolishes troll; Bale at Baker's Bay

Justin Thomas

Welcome to this week’s Social Eyes. After his impressive showing at the US Open, Justin Thomas followed it up with a missed cut at the Travelers Championship.

He tweeted his disappointment at missing out on the weekend at a course he enjoys playing – but his reasoning of being ‘out of gas’ from Erin Hills didn’t go down well with one follower.

Cue one of the greatest Twitter comebacks of all-time from JT – one which was lapped up by his followers.

Thomas was also called out by Real Madrid star Gareth Bale, who is currently holidaying in the #SB2K17 location of Baker’s Bay in the Bahamas.

He played it cool – but Smylie Kaufman went all ‘fanboy’ on the Welshman.

Sticking with footballers, Man City boss Pep Guardiola has a heck of a golf game. Here are just two of his shots from the Icons of Football golf tournament. FYI, he’s also playing in next week’s Irish Open pro-am.

After a shoot-out on the PGA EuroPro Tour, where the winner received £100,000, former European Tour pro and Sky Sports commentator John Morgan tried his luck and made it.

Sadly though, he wasn’t part of the contest. His shot was the first one after it had finished. Still, he swam across the pond to retrieve his ball.

Note to Andy Sullivan. Don’t fall asleep in front of your mates on the plane.

Phil Mickelson is on-site at the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship this week and has left some of the tournament’s competitors a little starstruck.

And finally…

That infamous Tiger Woods mugshot will no doubt be etched into our minds for a very long time. It’s now been made into a mural in Australia, too.
