Tiger Woods congratulated Justin Thomas on the golfer’s PGA Championship victory over Will Zalatoris on Sunday night.
Thomas fought to get into position of forcing a playoff and after Mito Pereira collapsed on the 18th hole, he was put into the playoff against Zalatoris at Southern Hills. Thomas had two birdies and saved par in the three-hole format and was holding the Wanamaker Trophy at the end of the day.
