- Thomas beats Will Zalatoris in playoff to win second major
- Chile’s Pereira led on tee at 18th hole but hit double bogey
Unfortunately Mito Pereira’s painful implosion will prove more memorable than victory for Justin Thomas.
Pereira stood on the 18th tee in the final round of this US PGA Championship with the making of history in his grasp. There had never been a Chilean major winner before. There still has not; Pereira, needing par for victory, carved a tetchy drive into a water hazard. An 18-handicap golfer would have been dismayed by the shot.
