Justin Thomas is currently playing in the men’s golf competition at Tokyo Olympics 2020. This is JT’s first-ever Olympics, and he encountered a disappointing start in Round 1. Nothing seems to be going his way, as JT missed plenty of opportunities. So when he converted one chance, Justin celebrated the moment joyously.

Thomas started his round one with all pars through 18 without a bogey or a birdie. His putter was ice cold, as he could not even make a birdie from 5 or 6ft. His tee shots were decent enough but still missed quite a few fairways. However, the only good thing for Justin was that he remained bogey-free thanks to his impeccable iron and wedge play.

Coming into the second round, Justin Thomas had a bad start as he double-bogeyed the second hole. However, Thomas was soon able to celebrate as he birdied the fourth hole. The 2021 Players Championship winner raised and waved his hands in jubliation. Furthermore, at the end of the day’s play, he jokingly quoted the video of him celebrating the birdie saying, “I did it,” with a laughing emoji.

Moreover, Justin Thomas went onto make another couple of birdies on the 8th and 9th holes and remained one under for the day and the event through front nine. 

But unfortunately, he again dropped a couple of shots as he scored back-to-back bogeys on 11 and 12. Thomas seemed frustrated with his game as nothing has been going his way for the last couple of months. But thankfully, he came back to one-under after scoring two birdies on 13 and 15.
