    Thomas misses cut, proceeds to own Twitter troll

    Perhaps Justin Thomas got a lesson from his buddy Rickie Fowler on how to deal with social media trolls. That lesson being, put them in their place. After missing the cut at the Travelers Championship, a week after making U.S. Open history and contending for his first major title, Thomas took to Twitter to explain his poor play and mentioned that the time off should be good for him.

The weird golf shouts returned for the Travelers Championship, and Goodell was the target for Boo Weekley's swing on the 13th on Sunday. After Weekley took his swing, a fan yelled, "Deport Roger Goodell!" The shout caught the attention of golf fans on Twitter, who generally thought it was great. For Weekley, the shout at least came after his shot - unlike this: That dog needed to work on its timing.
