He marked his ball, turned toward the back of the green and saw his grandparents, Paul and Phyllis Thomas, who had never seen him win since his joined the PGA Tour.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — If Lesley Manville's Oscar-nominated portrayal of an icy, unyielding family gatekeeper in "Phantom Thread" sent shivers down your spine, "Mum" is the antidote.
In the U.K. sitcom available on streaming service BritBox, Manville plays the polar opposite of her film role, a gentle soul with never a harsh word to say. It's further proof of the actress' shape-shifting artistry that has made her a favorite of top directors and actors.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Justin Thomas is a major champion. When he became one is more meaningful than where.
If he had to pick a major to win first, the PGA Championship would have been the most appropriate because of his family heritage. The first person he hugged was his father. The first person he called was his grandfather. Both are longtime club professionals. Mike Thomas, his father, served on the PGA of America board.
