Justin Thomas won the Honda Classic over the weekend after he beat Luke List in a playoff. But he’s making just as much headlines for kicking out a fan who heckled him.
The fan rooted for a ball that Thomas hit to end up in the bunker. He didn’t yell until after the ball was in the air, but that didnt matter to Thomas, who had the fan kicked out.
“Who said that? Who was cheering for that ball to get in the bunker? Was that you? You’re done, buddy, you’re gone.”
What an incredibly soft move. Could you imagine a fan in any other sport being kicked out for rooting against someone?
"Who said that? Who was cheering for that ball to get in the bunker? Was that you?"
"You're done, buddy, you're gone."
A fan pulls for Justin Thomas' drive to get in a bunker. You then hear someone (Thomas' caddie? or course security?) identify him. pic.twitter.com/piGiWDbtww
