Justin Thomas HITS OUT at PGA Tour over lack of Korn Ferry Tour Final coverage

Justin Thomas tweeted his disapproval of the PGA Tour's lack of coverage of the Korn Ferry Tour Qualifying Tournament's Final Stage, which ended up going into a Monday finish due to bad weather on Sunday. 

Fresh off finishing solo third at the World Wide Technology at Mayakoba on the PGA Tour on Sunday, the World No.6 clearly wanted to stick his feet up on Monday afternoon and watch the stars of tomorrow do battle for exempt status on the main circuit in 2022. 

 

 

"I really wish the final round of the Korn Ferry Tour Q School was on TV.... seems like a giant missed opportunity for great drama / storylines / potential studs coming out soon," tweeted Thomas. 

It is unknown as to whether Thomas knew there was a 'Featured Group' (comprising his good pal Michael Visacki, Kyle Westmoreland and Leandro Marelli) being streamed, but either way, he clearly wasn't best pleased. 

There was also some brief coverage of the final day on Golf Channel's website for US viewers, as pointed out in some of the responses. 

Here's how a number of golf fans reacted to JT's tweet:
