Two-time major champion Justin Thomas has revealed he was "a little p***** off" with the antics of Si Woo Kim during their frosty singles match at the 2022 Presidents Cup. 

Thomas once again sparked a debate about the topic of gimmes when he appeared a little bit ticked off at not being conceded a putt that in all honestly was probably inside the zone of friendship. 

Cameras picked up on the 29-year-old - who provided moments of pure comedy with Jordan Spieth at Quail Hollow Club last week - shaking his head and muttering to himself after using his Scotty Cameron T-5 Proto to demonstrate that his putt was inside length of his grip.

Thomas, who has been outspoken on the topic of the LIV Golf Invitational Series throughout the 2021-2022 season, is one of the most passionate players when it comes to the Ryder Cup or Presidents Cup. 

It's no surprise he was involved in a moment like this. 

In the past, he shot-gunned a beer in front of a frenzied crowd at Whistling Straits. Last week, he brought out the dab. 

After gimmegate, Thomas and Kim reached the 15th hole. JT let out a massive roar as he saved par. 

Kim responded by also saving par to keep the match tied. 

Then he did this:

The U.S. side eventually ran out 17.5 to 12.5 winners and Thomas lifted the lid on that moment. 

He told the media: "Honestly, at the time, I was pretty p***** off

"I think when you're in the moment, when you're on the other side of it, it's something that gets you motivated, gets you pumped up a little bit."

Kim made birdie at 16 to take a 1 up lead, Thomas responded with one of his own at 17 in a truly thrilling spectacle. 

Then Kim claimed the point with an exceptional birdie at the long, par-4 18th.

Kim said his gesture came from an amusing Ryder Cup moment that involved Patrick Reed doing something similar in 2014 at Gleneagles.

"I saw that Patrick [Reed] did it before," said Kim. "And yeah, JT give me fist pump, and then I had to do it. And I had to make it, and I made it. Then, like, yeah, I had to do something. I think that give me more energy."

Thomas added: "He [Kim] hit the shots and made the putts better than I did the last three holes or, really, the last nine holes when he needed to.

"So I can say whatever I want about it, but he beat me. So he has the upper hand on me.

"But we won the Cup so that's all that matters."
