For the most part, it has been a forgettable week for Justin Thomas.
He entered this year’s Players Championship as one of the betting favorites, however, he struggled through the first two rounds making the cut right on the number (2 over).
Thomas was even through his first eight holes Saturday at TPC Sawgrass in Ponta Vedra Beach, Florida, before stripping a drive down the 18th fairway — his ninth of the day.
He sent his 146-yard approach shot to the right, catching the green by just a few feet.
Thomas’ ball landed with some draw spin and worked its way down the slope before finding the bottom of the cup.
Through nine holes, Thomas was 2 under for the round, even for the championship and 11 back of Scottie Scheffler.
