Justin Thomas: Woods, Mickelson, Manning, Brady will want to ‘destroy each other’

Justin Thomas is one of the best golfers in the world, but on Sunday during “The Match: Champions for Charity” he will be a course reporter as his friends Tiger Woods and Peyton Manning compete against Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady.

While the whole event is for a good cause — raising $10 million or more for COVID-19 relief — the smack talking should be fun to eavesdrop on and Thomas said when it is winning time the juices will flow.

“When those guys get on the back 9, when they get the last four or five holes, it is going to be competitive,” Thomas told The Post. “Especially Peyton and Tom — they want to destroy each other. Phil and Tiger, no matter what they say, they want to destroy each other. That is just the way it is.”

Thomas spent two years as a communication major at Alabama with designs on being a golf analyst, and he may have some skills.

“They are going to probably put it a little lighter than that and it is a different scenario than an AFC Championship game for Peyton and Tom or a Masters for Tiger and Phil, but, at the end of the day, they get the bragging rights and they want to have it.” Thomas said.

The spectator-less telecast from the Medalist Golf Club in Hobe Sound, Fla., will be on Sunday at 3 p.m. on TNT, TBS, TruTV and HLN. It follows NBC’s golf event last week.

Charles Barkley and Justin Immelman will join host Brian Anderson, while Thomas will be teamed with Amanda Balionis. There will be celebrity guests, like Samuel L. Jackson.

While the Woods-Mickelson match in November 2018 was on pay-per-view, which included a B/R Live payment transaction snafu that made it free for all, this edition adds the two quarterbacking legends and is on both cable and online.

Thomas is very close with Woods, Mickelson and Brady. He knows Manning, too. He thinks the talking should be epic.

“Once you kind of get Tom going a little, he’ll keep it going,” Thomas said. “He’s somebody the more you give to him the more he will open back up toward you.

“Tiger is not exactly someone to mouth off a lot. Phil will probably talk more. But Tiger is kind of more the zinger type guy. He might not say much, but whatever he says might hurt and go a little deeper. I know Peyton the least of the four, but I know him pretty well. He’s just very witty. He is definitely going to have a lot to say and he is definitely going to remind Tom about the last couple of games [they] had against each other.”

Brady, 42, and Thomas, 27, vacation together. When Thomas hurt his wrist, Brady offered his TB12 trainer, Alex Guerrero, for rehab.

“We just have some mutual friends,” Thomas said. “We have taken a couple of golf trips together. He has spent a decent amount of time down here in Florida together.

“I don’t know if anyone even knows that he reached out to me to see his trainer in Alex and I went up to Boston and spent some time with him. We were friends before that, but that to me was really cool that he took the time and wanted to see me get better and went out of his way to make sure that that happened. We spent a lot of time jawing and golfing with each other, for sure.”

Sunday on the fifth hole the players will only use one club. On hole Nos. 8 and 16, a $25 million donation will be added if a player hits a hole-in-one. On hole Nos. 4 and 12, up to a $1 million donation could be made depending on how close the players get to the hole.

On hole Nos. 3 and 15, there will be longest drive competitions. Thomas knows the course well, as he and Woods play it often at what is essentially Woods’ home course.

And who is Thomas taking?

“I’m giving Tiger and Peyton the edge,” Thomas said. “Tiger knows that place like the back of his hand. He has to drive it well. With Phil, if he drives it well, with his iron game around the greens, I would give them advantage.

“I don’t know Peyton’s game well enough to honestly say his versus Tom’s so that could be a big factor. Tom has a lot of firepower. He might make two, three, four birdies, but he’ll probably be out of three or four holes. That is something that is good to have as a partner if he can make more birdies, but I just have to give the edge to Tiger because of how many times he’s played there.”

This Is Us star Justin Hartley’s ex Chrishell Stause breaks down in tears after being ‘blindsided’ by divorce – The Sun

THIS Is Us star Justin Hartley’s ex Chrishell Stause broke down in tears in a trailer for her real estate reality show Selling Sunset.

On the season two finale episode of the Netflix series, a trailer for season three aired.

A news announcer said: "Chrishell Stause is dealing with change. Her husband, This Is Us star Justin Hartley, filed for divorce.”

The actress-turned real estate agent told her friend Mary Fitzgerald: “I’m just kind of in shock with it all.”

She responded: “He just blindsided you?”

Chrishell nodded her head yes.

She added: "It's just a lot all at once because everybody in the whole world knows.

“I love him so much. This was my best friend. Who do I talk to now?”

Viewers may learn the reason for the sudden split, as co-worker Davina Potratz said: “She knows why this happened.”

Chrishell was so emotional over the divorce she walked out of her co-worker Christine Quinn’s wedding and cried: “I don’t want to be here right now! I don’t want to do this anymore!”

Justin, 43, filed for divorce from Chrishell, 38, in November 2019 after two years of marriage, citing irreconcilable differences.

He listed their separation date as July 8, 2019.

They tied the knot in 2017 and began dating in 2014.

Her co-star Mary Fitzgerald told People: "She's such a strong woman, I wouldn't have been able to go through it like she did in the public eye, but she's very strong, and she's just so down-to-earth and a trustworthy person, which is hard to find here in L.A.”

Season two of Selling Sunset is airing now on Netflix.

Justin Bieber Says Hailey Baldwin Healed His Self Confidence Through Skincare

Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin are one of young Hollywood’s buzziest couples. The two have been married since 2018 and often make headlines for their habit of opening up about the unique struggles and challenges in their union.

Between Bieber‘s mental health struggles and Baldwin’s famous friends, there is a lot to uncover regarding the young couple. Still, there can be no doubt that Baldwin has had a positive impact on Bieber, and on his various issues.

Recently, the singer talked about just how much his wife has helped him to become a better person and how she has greatly increased his self-confidence. 

Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin have known each other for many years

Bieber and Baldwin first met many years ago, when Bieber was an up-and-coming pop singer. They crossed paths for the first time at a Bieber fan event in 2009.

Although nothing romantic kicked off at that time, they did become casual friends a few years later. Baldwin and Bieber started to spend time together with mutual friends like Kylie Jenner, getting to know each other and enjoying downtime.

In 2016, Bieber and Baldwin started dating but chose to keep most of the details under wraps. They dated for a time before splitting for a few months. They got back together in 2018, and the rest is history.

They tied the knot in late 2018, in a simple courthouse ceremony. Bieber and Baldwin went on to get married for a second time, in a more formal ceremony, in late 2019. Although the fact that they married at a young age has earned them a lot of criticism, Bieber and Baldwin are still happily together today. 

Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber are open about their marriage

Bieber carried around a lot of baggage when he first got together with Baldwin. He was in a long-term relationship with Selena Gomez and dealt with a lot of fan backlash after breaking up with her to pursue a romance with Baldwin.

Bieber has also openly struggled with depression and has admitted several times that he does have issues being in the spotlight. 

However, Baldwin has not been intimidated by Bieber’s issues. Rather than running from difficulties within their marriage, she has proven that she wants to help him in whatever way that she can.

All in all, their marriage seems to be one that is founded on love and respect, rather than publicity or a push for fame.

How did Hailey Baldwin help Justin Bieber’s self-confidence?

In a recent episode of the new Facebook Watch series that he has with Baldwin, Bieber opened up about all the ways that she has helped him to become a better version of himself. He admitted that one of the ways that his wife helps to boost his confidence is through a proper skincare routine.

“She’s been pickin’ and prodding at my skin,” Bieber said. “She pops them. She puts, like, serum and does, like, masks for me.”

He gave props to Baldwin, telling her: “You’ve already helped me with my self-confidence even just getting my skin to the way it is now.”

Baldwin, a noted skincare and beauty junkie, said: “I’m super into skincare, especially because we’ve had a lot of time in this quarantine, I told him that by the time we exit this quarantine, he is going to have glowing perfect skin.”

It seems as though the young couple is choosing to spend their time in quarantine doing mainly productive things.
