Damage control probably wasn’t in Justin Thomas’ plans following his victory at the Honda Classic, but he had to do just that after overreacting to a fan who dared to root against him. Thomas, of course, had that fan removed for yelling, “Get in the bunker!” after his tee shot on No. 16 — a shot that landed cleanly on the fairway.
Thomas told media after the tourney that he felt the fan was very “inappropriate”, thus he had to go. He elaborated further on Twitter today and apologized to fans who were offended:
So the hype level for upcoming Ryder Cup is officially 10/10, right? European fans are absolutely going to give Thomas hell after this weekend’s display.
