"Gotta treat the fans better" Justin Thomas blasts PGA Champ beer prices

Earlier in the week, a picture of the beer prices at Southern Hills for the PGA Championship went viral. And even Justin Thomas appears to be a bit miffed.

"Gotta treat the fans better" blasted Thomas, 29, on social media when he saw that one Stella Artois will set you back $19.

If you want to go for the cheaper option you can opt for a can of Michelob Ultra, which you will have to fork out $18 for. 

The rest of the menu doesn't look too appealing, either, with a bottled water costing you $6. 

Cocktails cost $15 whilst souvenir cocktails (made with Jim Beam) will cost an extra $4. 

Even when we put the post up on our Instagram page the prices did not go over too well with our readers. 

"If I paid $19 for a beer I'd have to kick my own a** one " one of our readers wrote. 

The prices are a little bit different to those of the 86th Masters, where a crispy, cold lager cost a more reasonable $5 and bottled water for a few bucks. 

Granted, it will have cost you more to get in, but still...

"Uhhh what," Thomas added in his post. One fan joked that beers cost $4.50 in the Saudi league, which the 2017 PGA Championship winner found funny. 

"That's pretty good," replied Thomas, who has been an outspoken critic over the emergence of the Saudi-backed LIV Golf Invitational Series. 

Last week he provided a damning assessment of the situation, telling the LIV Golf signees: "If you want to go, go!"
