He's done it. JT wins US PGA.
In truth he strolled it. He was that good. Even Quail Hollow – with all its crazy tricky greens and US Open-style awkwardness could not bamboozle Justin Thomas.
All around him faltered at one stage or another but JT did not. The golf course may have won the war against 150 of the world's best players but the individual battle was won by a certain Justin Thomas.
JT was two shots behind overnight leader Kevin Kisner going into the final round but prevailed after a final round of 68 to win on a 72 hole score of -8.
Francesco Molinari (67), Patrick Reed (67) and Louis Oosthuizen (70) finished in a three-way tie for second.
Thomas made six birdies in his round including a spectacular pair on holes 10 and 13.
