Over the weekend, Justin Thomas secured his second PGA Championship with an improbable comeback win.
Entering the day seven shots behind the leader, Mito Pereira, Thomas needed a solid round on Sunday to get back into the mix. That's exactly what he did, carding a three-under, 67 to tie with Will Zalatoris after 72 holes.
Thomas and Zalatoris then entered a three-hole playoff where the 2017 PGA Champion emerged victorious. Following the round, former professional golfer and current analyst Paige Spiranac said she thinks the three-hole playoff format is perfect.
"The PGA Championship has ended and congratulations to Justin Thomas! He beat Will Zalatoris in a three-hole playoff. I thought was absolutely perfect. One-hole playoff, not enough. 18 holes the next day? Way too much. Three holes? Just right," she said.
Anything can happen in one hole of golf to completely derail a player's chances. However, playing three holes gives plenty to time for a winner to be determined.
Also, the fans sitting at home don't want to watch another 18 holes of golf on a Monday following the weekend of play.
