PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – You had an idea that when Justin Thomas came so close to holing his second shot on the 16th hole for a double eagle Saturday, that maybe, just maybe, we were in for something special on Sunday.
But, that’s just way too early to speculate, right? Hmm.
Well, J.T. saved up even more of his best stuff for Sunday, rallying from three shots behind with even more aggressive play to finish with a 4-under 68 and to THE PLAYERS Championship.
With the victory, he becomes only the fourth player to win a major, THE PLAYERS Championship, the FedExCup and a World Golf Championships.
He said it as good as he can ever remember playing from tee-to-green, and he needed every ounce of it to finish just ahead of Lee Westwood, finishing second for the second week in a row.
“I fought so hard today,” Thomas said. “It’s probably one of the best rounds of my life tee-to-green. I’ve seen some crazy stuff happen on TV in the past, and I’m glad to be on this side of it.”
As crazy as it sounds, Thomas was outside the cut line after just 27 holes of play on Friday. Two days later, he looked at the gold trophy with Commissioner Jay Monahan to reflect on his incredible week, and also, how far golf had come in the year after the shutdown.
