Remember “Phil Was Here”?

Now we have, “Justin Was Here.”

In a virtual repeat of Phil Mickelson’s recovery shots on successive days from a hospitality tent at the 2014 Barclays, Tour rookie Justin Thomas made birdie from a hospitality tent behind the 15th green Friday at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open at TPC Summerlin in Las Vegas [see video above].

Thomas had attempted to drive the reachable par-4 15, just like Mickelson’s recovery shots on Friday and Saturday at the drivable par-4 5th hole Ridgewood Country Club in New Jersey.

The biggest difference was that, unlike Mickelson in New Jersey, nobody offered Thomas a beer after his shot.
