BROOKLINE, Mass. — The day began on a bizarre foot for Justin Thomas. As he stepped to the tee, the announcer launched him as “Justin Thompson.”
Not an amazing look to get the World no. 5’s identify flawed.
After opening with three pars, Thomas’ ball discovered the green on No. 4, one of many hardest holes on the golf course. It got here to relaxation a number of inches away from a water drain, a spot the place gamers usually get aid.
The 29-year-old determined he was not in any hazard (risking damage by taking part in the shot) and that it wasn’t obscuring his swing in any means. So, he performed from the place his ball got here to relaxation. From a bizarre stance, Thomas laid the sod over a wedge right into a bunker 50 yards shy of the inexperienced.
He wasn’t blissful.
“That’s what pisses me off, because so many other people would lie about being able to hit that, but it’s just like, I’m not going to hit it. That’s bulls***, man,” Thomas mentioned after the shot.
His third failed to succeed in the inexperienced, and Thomas walked to the fifth tee field with a bogey.
