JUSTIN THOMAS

Until Phil Mickelson’s back nine rampage on Thursday, young American Justin Thomas briefly held the clubhouse lead at Royal Troon on four-under-par.


But, in his Open Championship debut, the 23-year-old fell down the leaderboard with rounds of 77 and 74. In his three rounds so far, he’s played the back nine in five-over-par – not a bad effort at all considering some of the big numbers being made out there.

Incredible indeed.
