Golf Australia Express : GA Express 254
I F THAT’S Justin Thomas going “berserk”, there’s a good chance he might need his pulse checked for signs of life when he’s going about his normal daily business. When the 24-year-old chipped in for birdie from just off the green at the 13th hole in the final round of the PGA Championship, there were no Tiger Woods- style pumped-up theatrics. Just a quick fist pump, a couple of words muttered to himself, a slap of hands with his caddie and then onward to pick up his ball. “That was probably the most berserk I’ve ever gone on a golf course,” Thomas said in the moments after claiming his maiden major in a two-shot victory over Francesco Molinari, Patrick Reed and Louis Oosthuizen. It’s not the personality assessment that most would pair with the Kentucky native, who’s known for his somewhat overt displays of emotion. Even his dad describes him as fiery and emotional, but you wouldn’t have known it this week as he calmly plotted his way to glory on a back nine that had chewed up and spat out most of the field over the course of the previous four days. And that speaks volumes about the mental strength that will almost certainly see the kid dine out on more major success before he’s through. Get it done. Move on. Stay the course. Three weeks ago he was missing his third consecutive cut after posting a second- round 80 at the Open Championship.
