Thomas: Jealousy of Spieth fueled PGA triumph

Jordan Spieth fears the US PGA Championship could be decided by a stroke of bad luck

Seventeen years on, Thomas has now joined golf's elite.

Stricker's 5.5 has a similar wingback look to the putter Justin Thomas started using a year ago during the FedExCup Playoffs that produced a 59 and four wins this season. With the victory, Thomas is now sixth in the world golf rankings, behind superstars like Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy and Sergio Garcia.

Golf fan Jordan Baker already knew he was not going to win the parlay he'd placed on the winners of golf's four major championships heading into Sunday's final round of the PGA Championship.

He finished two shots clear of Francesco Molinari, Patrick Reed and Louis Oosthuizen, who were all tied for second.

However, Spieth, the British Open champion, insisted that having one Major victory equates to "a great year" because it is so tough to even win one nowadays.

The birdie on the 10th was an indication of the golfing Gods bestowing favours.

"I was just out there trying to make as many birdies as possible".

But that wasn't the end of it. "So I kind of don't want to go there anymore with him".

"I threw a little fit to try to see what would happen".

Then, of that chip-in on 13 which would prove crucial, Thomas observed: "It's tough to chip out of the rough, you can really look stupid in a heartbeat because it's all into the grain and it's really short to where you can just flub it".

"Winning them is so hard, you can have a fantastic year without winning a Major". However, a PGA Championship can only help his cause, according to Tamara Jacobs, a senior vice president at Ketchum Sports & Entertainment.
