On the second playoff hole, Justin Thomas hit the shot of the tournament, driving the green with a 3-wood, and setting up a tap-in birdie, which turned out to be the key to victory.
Thomas said, “That was a nice one. I mean, the wind off the left with a 3-wood isn’t exactly my favorite, so I hit a beautiful shot in regulation in that bunker like we wanted to, and I just — I hit essentially the same shot, just had a little bit more cut on it, and for it to go up on the green was nice just to put a little bit of heat on Will. But I like these 17th holes in the PGA Championship, so I’d like to keep making a habit of that.”
