Former Alabama golfer Justin Thomas sets course record with amazing day at BMW Championship
There have been some low scores at this week’s BMW Championship at Medinah Country Club in Medinah, Illinois, but former Alabama golfer Justin Thomas has the lowest of them all.
On Saturday, Thomas set the course record at the club, going 11-under par to shoot a 61, moving to -21 for the weekend.
He also had multiple eagles on Saturday, which ESPN Stats & Info notes is his 6th round accomplishing that feat:
