Justin Thomas Throws Dig At DeChambeau After Gallery Rope Incident At LIV Tournament

Justin Thomas Throws Dig At DeChambeau After Gallery Rope Incident At LIV Tournament
By Colman Stanley Updated

Justin Thomas has thrown a light-hearted dig at Bryson DeChambeau, following his mishap with a gallery-rope at last weekend's LIV Golf tournament in Chicago.

DeChambeau was on the 14th hole at Rich Harvest Farms, when he inadvertently walked straight into a rope which was blocking the gallery from the course, and injured his face in the process.

Footage caught DeChambeau's reaction, where he exclaimed "what the fuck guys", before dropping to his knees and clutching his face.

The No Laying Up podcast, who are staunchly anti- LIV Golf, tweeted the video with the caption, "Even better than I hoped," to which Justin Thomas replied with a gif of an army sniper.

“I think I had to prove to probably myself and some other people that I’m still a great player. I’m still out here to win golf tournaments. I’m proud how I hung in there today.”

“I think probably that first event was the most pressure I’ve been under all year inside of an event. I feel as though I needed to prove to myself, and probably more so to other people, that just because I’ve changed tours doesn’t mean I’m a worse player for it. I’m still out here to win. That’s what we’re all here for. Hopefully we can keep this going.”

“I think for sure there is a history aspect that is for certain missing [with LIV], but it doesn’t mean the tournament is a bad tournament because of it. There are 48 of the best guys out here trying to compete and trying to win. In 10, 20 years’ time, these could be the biggest events in the world. We’re just not there yet.”
