FedEx St Jude: What has been said?

Thomas, who won the FedEx Cup in 2017, suffered heartbreak at the Wyndham Championship on Sunday and missed out on the FedEx St Jude by just one shot.

The two-time Major champion saw a long-range chip on the final hole lip out as he fell agonisingly close from making the play-offs.

He said: “It would have been a lot more incredible if it would have gone in.

“I know this game doesn’t owe you anything, but I feel like I fought hard enough to deserve it.

“I hit some really, really good shots when I needed to, hit some great chips when I needed to, hit an unbelievable putt for eagle on 15 and obviously the up-and-down on 17 and 18.

“I did the best I could.”
