Jordan Spieth showed that friendship is paramount following Justin Thomas’ PGA Championship win on Sunday.
The American pair have been friends since early childhood and no doubt shared many a moment on the practice green draining putts pretending to win major championships.
After just a few years playing professionally, Spieth left his friend in the dust, racking up three majors. But on Sunday at Quail Hollow, it was finally Thomas’ turn in the spotlight.
Spieth was on hand at the final green to congratulate his buddy after the maiden win and even threw in a buttslap while Thomas was on his way to hand in his card…

In a sporting world where winning is everything, it is refreshing to see these two have not let results get between them.
Justin and Jordan.
