Here's What Justin Thomas' Dad Told Him After His PGA Championship Win

Thomas won by two strokes over Italian Francesco Molinari (67) and Patrick Reed (67), each of whom started the finale at 2-under and rocketed up the leader board, and Oosthuizen (70), who pitched in for eagle at the par-5 15th to stay in the chase but bogeyed 16 to fall back.

"I can't put it into words right now".

"I just had an unbelievable calmness", Thomas said.

Birdies at the 7th and 9th pulled Thomas back near Matsuyama's solo lead.

Sunday is just the second time Thomas has finished in the top 10 of a major tournament.

England's Jordan Smith, playing in his first major championship, carded a closing 68 to finish a tie for ninth with Open runner-up Matt Kuchar and former world number one Jason Day. And when he looks back on why it didn't happen this week, he just has to look back to the first round and that triple bogey on the fifth hole.

As for Kisner, he looked a forlorn figure after an erratic back nine which began with a birdie at 10 followed by back-to-back bogeys, although he lifted himself back into the shake-up with birdies at 14 and 15.

"It was amusing because it snuck up on the hole".

Day ruined his chances of winning the final major of the year when he took a disastrous quadruple bogey on the 18th in his third round. "Just because I know how I've felt when I've had a chance to win just a regular tour event. I have got this next week off to assess what I need, to go forward".

The American moved two shots clear of the field on the 13th when he chipped in from the edge of the green, as the crowd erupted into life.

Even the most casual fans could notice the host of big-name golfers waiting to congratulate Thomas on the 18th green. Kisner tried to get going again on Sunday, but bogeys on 11, 12, and 16 combined with a double bogey on 18 and ended up costing Kisner the 2017 PGA Championship.

This was an outstanding performance, taking the initiative, seizing the moment. Then he hit a root on a shot with an 8-iron and bent the club, meaning he couldn't use it when he needed it late in his round.

Except he was wearing jeans and a backwards hat, there to give his friend Justin Thomas a congratulatory hug. He hits it a mile, he can hit it high.

"I was like, 'This ball has to go in". Sure, it's perhaps gonna go a little wild sometimes, but it's fun as hell and there's gonna be lots of yards through the air. "I think I saw some highlights today".

Following the completion of the 99th PGA Championship at Quail Hollow - a venue where he had previously been dominant - four-time major champion Rory McIlroy stated that he may be required to miss the remainder of this season as he seeks to fully recover from a rib injury that has blighted his year, leading him to only competing in 13 tournament this year.

Thomas gets referred to endlessly as Spieth's best friend because Spieth, who is 3 months younger, has done so much so quickly.

After opening up with a score of 70 in round one, Matsuyama posted a brillian round two score of 64 on Friday.

He shot 67 yesterday to finish the PGA at par, still looking to regain the form that escaped him when he fell at his Augusta rental home and injured his back on the eve of the Masters.

Where did the British players finish?

. Kisner had a two-shot lead early in the round and was in great shape to win his first major in wire-to-wire fashion.

Marc Leishman finished strongly with a 4-under round to tie for 13th. That gave him a 73, and after getting within three shots, he trailed by six.
