Justin Thomas won the playoffs and won the second PGA Championship


Justin Thomas spent the first two holes of the overall three-hole playoffs to win the PGA Championship for the second time, ahead of Will Zalataris on extra holes on Monday (AEST) at the Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa, Akla.

Thomas, who also won the major in 2017, started the day with seven strikes from leader Mitt Pereira of Chile. He scored 3-less-67 and finished 5th below, a score compared to Zalataris (71).

Thomas and Zalataris played under numbers 13, 17 and 18 in the playoffs. They both killed the birds on par-5 13th and then Thomas went ahead with the birdie on the next hole. On the 18th Thomas had a productive number to become a champion.

Pereira, who has led or shared the advantage for most of the last two rounds, came out in the 18th match with a one-shot advantage. But his tee hit revealed a water hazard, and he eventually got a double bullet in the final round of 75. He tied for third place with Cameron Young (71) in 4 less.

67 Thomas corresponded to the lowest round of the day. He passed the 4th under the cross segment with nine holes, which ended on the 17th, but on the last hole he managed only to draw.

Zolataris, the 36-hole leader, made a pair pass on the 18th hole to stay in a draw with Thomas. However, they were both a shot from the pace until Pereira was shaken.

Pereira started the round with a three-stroke advantage, only to draw with Zolataris before regaining the advantage to three strokes. Pereira later stumbled again and fell into a draw with Young in 6 less.

But it was Thomas, the former world number one in the official world golf rankings, who proved to be the biggest threat. He was the only golfer among the late contenders to have already won the PGA Tour.
