JERSEY CITY, N.J. — The Spring Break boys of Justin Thomas and Rickie Fowler have lit up Liberty National like it's Baker's Bay, cruising to a 6-and-4 win in their opening match on Thursday, and then leading comfortably for most of their Friday four-ball session before closing out the International side's top duo, Louis Oosthuizen and Branden Grace, 3 and 2.
En route to the Friday win, Thomas pulled off a shot on the par-4 14th hole that's no doubt one of the highlights of the week so far. Fowler had his moment on Thursday with a holed chip at No. 3 to catapult them to the win.
Here's JT's answer to that:
That elicited one of the loudest reactions of the day, due in large part to the celebration from JT—holding his arms up for at least a 20-count as he got the Liberty National fans pumped after the hole-out.
Nobody would confuse Jersey City for the Bahamas, but JT and Rickie are playing like they're on a vacation thus far at the Presidents Cup.
