Thomas, embellished out in intolerable fluorescent pinkish trousers, constructed a no reduction electric opening that featured 9 birdies, dual bogeys and was capped with a record-smashing eagle during a par-five 18th to finish a best singular turn in U.S. Open history, in propinquity to par.

I’ll substantially go back, container adult and afterwards I’ll come behind and have a drink and watch a shutting stretch. “Looking brazen to a subsequent dual days”. So that kind of takes a advantage divided from a bombers.
