Thomas earns first major title in PGA Championship

Justin Thomas Thomas earns first major title in PGA Championship
Pammachio Corsino | 14 Agosto, 2017, 08:42

Trying to become the youngest player to win the career Grand Slam, Spieth didn't make much happen at Quail Hollow and shot a 1-over-par 72 during a hot, humid first round of the last major of the season.

Kisner held a two-shot lead after birdies at Nos. His ball hung on the lip of the cup for almost 10 seconds before finally darting to the bottom of the hole.

CHARLOTTE - Jordan Spieth got off to a pedestrian start Thursday in his march toward history at the 99th PGA Championship.

You can't particularly blame him.

Thomas has now won four times on the PGA Tour this season and five times in his career.

Kevin Kisner withstood a wavering back nine to keep the lead, shooting a 1-over-par 72 in the third round of the PGA Championship on Saturday at Quail Hollow Club. Quail Hollow played host to the Wells Fargo Championship for 14 years starting in 2003.

"Kind of stinks because it sets me back there", he said. "Getting my first win, and then being in contention a couple years ago".

Smith earned his way into the last major of the year by winning the Porsche European Open earlier this year. It suits my eye. Oosthuizen holed a 50-foot birdie putt on the 18th that made him a runner-up in all four majors.

Despite finishing over par, McIlroy is still confident in his game and happy with his position on the scoreboard.

It was disaster from there. When his approach shot on No. 18 landed near a stream and within the water hazard, Rahm stood with his back to the green and chipped backward using only his right arm.


It easily could have been a huge negative momentum swing for Fowler, who had birdied the previous two holes.

He finished with six birdies in all.

McIlroy was done in by a bogey and double bogey at 13th and 14th and both were T-33rd.

"I was a lot more calm than I thought I would be, to be honest", Thomas said. On the back nine, he had three bogeys in a row from third to fifth, before stemming the rot with a par and then closed the day with three straight birdies for a card of one-under 70 and was Tied-15th. He's only hitting the fairways about half the time and that's just not enough to give himself the birdie opportunities he needed to get in the mix.

"Let you know when the year's over", he said.

A thunderstorm that halted play for almost an hour and 45 minutes came after Matsuyama had made three consecutive birdies starting at the 12th hole, but he took advantage of wet conditions when play resumed and added birdies at the par-five 15th and par-three 17th.

There are 25 players who must finish their second rounds starting at 7.30am (1130 GMT) Saturday.

He's hoping his consistent play can lead to that elusive first major championship.

"As I said, I have a good bit of time to get healthy and address a few things going forward".

Fowler was paired with Rory McIlroy and Jon Rahm, two players he enjoys playing with.
