divot dave posted a topic in Tour TalkWondering what everyone's thoughts are on the fan ejection by Justin Thomas. Do you think he was right for doing so? Is this type of fan behavior a trend that could get out of hand? I guess I'm a little iffy where I stand. Given the rowdy environments of some of the other tournaments, is it asking too much to have a little thicker skin out there? On the other hand, I can see the merit of preserving etiquette of the outing. It was just suggested on the Golf Channel to have a sort of Fan Code of Conduct, which might be a great idea on a per venue basis. What are your thoughts?
When Justin Thomas fired his 63 on Saturday at the US Open, you could almost feel Johnny Miller reaching for his computer to respond. Well, he didn't disappoint, and was quick to reply, in Miller-esque fashion, that his 63 in the final round of the 1973 US Open was better - tougher course (I agree), won him the Open (obviously). We were batting it around in the US Open thread so I thought having a separate thread might be a good idea. My take - Miller's, even though it was 'only' 8 under par was superior to Thomas's 9-under 63. JT can take solace in having the lowest round in relation to par in Open history...but Miller's was still superior, if for no other reason that it won him the Open. I give points for Miller doing it in the final round, a totally different paradigm than the 3rd round. JT wasn't even leading after his 63...that's how low the scoring was on Saturday - he simply had the lowest round on a day where 65's & 67's abounded. Someone posted something to the effect of, "Yeah but Miller didn't have 600-yard par 5's to deal with or 525-yard par 4's" - Well, put a persimmon wood in today's pros hands & Balata balls for them to hit & you wouldn't have THEM dealing with 600-yard par 5's or 525-yard par 4's either - you can't give JT credit for something technology addressed decades ago. Anyway, thread started. Have at it.
Can we just talk about Justin Thomas for a second? I posted around last May asking who everyone thought would be the next big golfer, I said Justin Thomas. He's been my favorite golfer since he was a freshman at Bama and I started to get into golf, and now he's blowing up. I don't see an end to it. Prediction: Justin Thomas will have 6 tour wins this year including last week and probably this week. He will grab a major, possibly the masters as he did pretty well in the first round last year. What'd yall think about him as a player and a person? Is he the next big golfer?
