Throwback: Thomas Hits Driver Off Deck, Nails Fan, Chips In For Birdie

This is Justin Thomas with a memorable birdie on the par-5 14th at the 2016 Valspar Championship.

Thomas first shanks a DRIVER off the deck which goes way right and supposedly nails a actor fan (who does a great LeBron James imitation in order to score a free ball or glove).

Or as one commenter said, “That spectator gave us a soccer quality flop……. knew he was gonna get an autographed sumthin so he milked it.”

Not your average birdie. ? #TOURVault

JT then lays up with his 3rd shot which lands on the fringe, and, ho-hum, chips it in for a birdie.
