Justin Thomas slams PGA Championship after fuming golf fans blast ‘outrageous’ cost of alcohol

FORMER golf No1 Justin Thomas has blasted the alcohol prices at the PGA Championships, saying fans have to be “treated better”.

One fan posted a picture to Twitter of the prices spectators were being charged for drinks.

A can of Michelob Ultra lager costs a whopping $18 – equivalent to around £14.50.

The 29-year-old fumed on Twitter: “$18(!!!!!!) for a beer… uhhhh what. Gotta treat the fans better than that!”

Cocktails are priced at as much as $19 (£15.20).

Even water is far from cheap, setting fans back a whopping $6 (£4.80) per bottle.

Fans were quick to vent their fury at the “outrageous” price-list.


One wrote: “That is just wrong…shame on you PGA.”

Another added: “This is outrageous and I hope fans don’t attend because of this price gauging, sporting events are no longer affordable for an average family and this will only get worse if fans don’t take a stand.”

Meanwhile a third said: “Absolute robbery.”
