Justin Thomas hurls club after finding water

Justin Thomas

Frustration got the better of Justin Thomas on the 18th hole at TPC Sawgrass as he petulantly hurled his club after finding the water with his second shot.

After a stretch of three bogeys in a row from the 13th to 15th holes, Thomas repaired the damage with an eagle at the 16th and birdie at the 17th. However, his closing round momentum was killed with this iron shot, and a club throw followed.

On commentary, Sir Nick Faldo referred to it as a ‘lousy flick’ and he went on to bogey the hole to finish with a one-over-par 73.
