“The first thing I said to Jimmy,” Thomas said, “‘I got some of that Brooks Koepka money.’”
Thomas and Koepka have a running bet this season concerning holeouts, with certain payments allotted for certain shots.
Well, there's an extra $1,000 for JT. #brookskoepkasmoney

“That’s the first thing I said to him,” Thomas repeated. “Because that’s another holeout.
“Thank you, Brooks.”
That was an 8-iron from 180, by the way.
