He’ll be cheered on from the stands by girlfriend Jillian Wisniewski, who was there when he lifted the PGA Championship in 2017.

Who is Jillian Wisniewski?

BORN in 1993, Jillian graduated with a BA in Journalism from the University of Kentucky.

She worked for the university TV department before taking up her current role a Production Business Manager at McGarry Bowen in Chicago.

Jillian was on hand to see her boyfriend’s big major victory in 2017 – but only just.

She was supposed to be in the air at the time and due to leave before the competition ended, but changed flights at the last minute after his extraordinary performance.

Thomas said: “I truly felt like I was going to win. I remember my girlfriend was supposed to fly out at about 7pm and I was like, you need to change your flight to later, I just feel like I don’t want you to miss this. I feel like I’m going to get it done.”

What did Thomas do during the 2021 Tournament of Champions?

Thomas uttered a homophobic slur under his breath on January 9 after missing a short putt at the Hawaii event.

His foul language was picked up by microphones on the course.

Thomas is likely to be fined for conduct unbecoming a professional, though the PGA Tour does not disclose conduct punishment.

He would apologize, admitting his conduct was “inexcusable.”

He said: “First off, I just apologize. I’m an adult.

“I’m a grown man, there’s absolutely no reason for me to say anything like that. It’s terrible.

“I’m extremely embarrassed. It’s not who I am, it’s not the kind of person that I am or anything that I do.

“Unfortunately, I did it and I have to own up to it and I’m very apologetic.”

Thomas added: “It’s bad. There’s no other way to put it.

“I need to do better, I need to be better. It’s definitely a learning experience.

“I just … I deeply apologize to everybody and anybody who I offended and I’ll be better because of it.”

The PGA Tour said: “As he expressed after his round, we agree that Justin’s comment was unacceptable.”

What did Thomas say during the 2020 Masters?

Thomas accidentally told TV interviewer Scott Van Pelt “I love you” after getting his words in a muddle.

The golfer, who was tied for the lead in the 2020 Masters after the second round, was being quizzed on ESPN.

Ending the interview, Van Pelt told the American golfer to come back and see CBS’ Jim Nantz for an interview in the same room at Augusta National on Sunday.

That would have meant he had won the Green Jacket.

To which, the Kentuckian said: “I love you.”
