Drinks On Justin Thomas

Despite a frustrating final round, Justin Thomas does have good memories to look back on from his trip to Mexico. Thomas recorded the shot of the tournament at the 232-yard Par-3 13th, recording his 21st ace of his lifetime.

It is only fitting to watch Thomas’s ace in Español.


Rory McIlroy’s Hole-Out
