It wasn't to be for Justin Thomas last week at The Masters. He finished on 1-under-par and nine shots behind an impressive winner in Scottie Scheffler.
He clawed his way back into the tournament at Augusta National with a 67 on day two, but weekend scores of 72 put an end to his chances of a second major title.
His win at the PGA Championship in 2017 feels a while ago now and Thomas is also winless on the PGA Tour since The Players Championship in March 2021.
At certain points, Thomas boiled over last week in Georgia and this led to a hilarious outburst on the tee box of the par-5 13th hole in the second round.
Aiming to bend his driver up and around the left-hand trees, the 28-year-old hit his shot too far left and he recognised this immediately.
He begged for the shot to get lucky, but it didn't. "F***you golf swing," is what Thomas appeared to say after the outcome of his shot became clear.
Despite his low points during the week, the 14-time PGA Tour winner finished in a tie for eighth which is only his second top-10 finish at The Masters in his seven appearances at the event.
The World No.8 has made six top 10's in 10 starts this season which is very consistent and all in all, he was happy with his week down Magnolia Lane.
"It was a grind. It was a fight. To put myself in the third to last group after 76 in the first round, it was nothing to hang my head about. I obviously would love that round over, would love some stretches here and there over, but no, I fought hard," Thoms said on Sunday.
"A lot of positives. I would say more positives than negatives. I putted the ball great.
"This week I may have necessarily not holed a lot, but I definitely holed a lot outside of 10 feet, which is something we've been working on really hard.
"I hit a lot of great shots and had - made a lot of momentum kind of saving things and then felt like, like I said, after shooting 76 the first day and being in damn near last, to be in the third to last group on Sunday is great - good stuff."
