Justin Thomas broke US Open records and the internet couldn’t handle it
On Twitter, probably.
It isn’t everyday a 63 is carded at a major – but at the US Open? It’s unheard of.
And, suitably the internet lost its mind at what Justin Thomas achieved on Saturday:

No better feeling in golf than standing over the ball & knowing you are going stripe every shot & hole every putt – great playing JT ?? #63

As Justin Thomas walked off I complimented the pink pants – he said, "you better go low if you're going to wear these."

Some of these guys are playing a video game in real life when they get going. The 3w by JT, not a handful in the world could hit that shot

That's a 63 at the US Open for Justin Thomas…on a par 72… on Saturday… to take the lead. Other than that, nothing to see here.

Justin Thomas said he was fighting hunger pangs down the stretch. Blamed miss on 15 on shakiness from hunger. Imagine his score w/ a snack
