"I knew Tiger [Woods] had a shoot on Monday and Tuesday in LA, so I was gonna wait until he got done with that," Thomas said as he revealed how Tiger Woods helped him regain his form in 2021.
 
"And I was gonna reach out to him on Tuesday night like, 'Hey, dude, just lemme know when you get back home, like I just want to call you, I'm not in a good place, and I just need to talk.
 
"I was just like … when is stuff gonna stop going so bad this year? What kind of hit home for me, is, when things aren't going well, he's like, 'You need to go figure it out. No offense to your dad, no offense to your caddie, you need to go out by yourself, you're a grown man, and go figure it out.'"
 
Team USA members: Thomas, Jordan, Spieth, Daniel Berger, Harris English, Tony Finau, Xander Schauffele, Scottie Scheffler, Collin Morikawa, Dustin Johnson, Bryson DeChambeau, Brooks Koepka and Patrick Cantlay.
