Justin Thomas’ Ryder Cup hopes are hanging by a thread after a disastrous year where he missed cuts in three out of four majors. These performances speak of a player totally out of his element. However, amid these challenging times, the 2x Major champ has the support of golf beauty Paige Spiranac.

Spiranac is known for making crazy predictions and, more often than not, her predictions come true. Now, Golf Mommy has made a big prediction about the 30-year-old, too.

In the latest episode of her podcast, Playing a Round With Paige Renee, Spiranac went on to back Justin Thomas for the Ryder Cup. She said that we can talk all we want and speculate all we want, but eventually, we will see Justin Thomas play at the Ryder Cup.

She was asked by her co-host, who is also her best friend, as confirmation if she for sure thought so. The host, however, disagreed with Paige and said: “as much as I love Justin Thomas in the Ryder Cup. I think I will think less of Zach Johnson if he picks him.”

And the host continued by saying, I don’t think he’s worthy of it this year.” The host thought picking someone so low in merit would not be the right move for the Captain. In Thomas’ defense, Spiranac said that he is one of those players who add significantly to the team since they are wonderful match-play players and they show great team camaraderie.

Zach Johnson is the captain of the US Ryder Cup team and has six picks at his disposal. Not being able to seal automatic qualification, the only way Thomas can now break into the 12-member squad is that Johnson makes him one of his six picks. In the podcast, Spiranac continued playing up the 30-year golfer.

According to Paige Spiranac, Justin Thomas is a fiery feisty player and can make up for his poor performances so far with a splendid performance at the Ryder Cup kicking off in late September in Rome. Could this prediction also come true like her last wild prediction?

Earlier this year, Paige Spiranac accurately predicted the win of Rickie Fowler at the Rocket Mortgage Classic who had been in a dry spell for three years. He grabbed a $1.58 million victory at the tournament shortly after Paige sang his praises and declared him one of her all-time favorite golfers.

Spiranac has made some more bold claims in the past including but not limited to golf, like how Rafael Nadal will win one more grand slam before he bids a final goodbye to tennis and retires. She’s been giving out predictions for a ton of sports including football, basketball, golf, hockey, tennis, and more.
