WHOOP shows JT was ready for PGA Championship win

Sleep and recovery scores demonstrate American was in good shape

On Saturday night heading into Sunday, Justin Thomas recorded a 100% sleep performance and 89% green recovery score, ensuring his body and mind were fully rested and primed for his final round at Southern Hills.

Sunday was a historic performance for JT, shooting three-under with clutch shots down the stretch and in the playoff. It tied the largest final round comeback (7 strokes) in PGA Championship history.  
WHOOP recovery is a daily measure of how prepared your body is to perform, no matter what it is that you do. It quantifies how your body is adapting to various stressors. With a Green score (67-100%) it indicates a body is well recovered and primed to perform.
More data insights from the star's Saturday night sleep show a noticeable uptick from his typical baselines: 
  • 2.5 hours of REM 
  • 1:50 slow wave sleep (+13 mins more than 30-day average)
  • 9:50 time in bed (1:24 more than 30-day average)
Additionally, Thomas woke up with ideal green recoveries on Friday and Saturday as well (89% and 88% respectively). Therefore, he had a 3-day green streak to help boost his victory. This is yet another instance of the power of sleep and recovery leading to peak performance.
