TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Justin Thomas is a PGA champion again when he least expected it.
Thomas tied a PGA Championship record when he rallied from seven shots behind Sunday at Southern Hills with a 67.
Thomas’ Rally got him into playoff
That got him into a playoff when Mito Pereira of Chile made double bogey on the final hole.
In the three-hole playoff, Thomas made two birdies and took the lead over Will Zalatoris. A par on the last hole was enough for his second PGA title and 15th career win. Zalatoris was clutch in his own right by making an 8-foot par on the last hole.
