Justin Thomas is one of the most exciting and popular golfers on the PGA TOUR. At just 27-years old, he can lay claim to a major victory, a FedEx Cup Championship, and a PGA TOUR Player of the Year Award. Thomas’ start on the Tour was strong, finishing as a runner-up for PGA TOUR Rookie of the Year, and he has since accumulated 13 PGA TOUR victories, most recently the 2020 WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational. Since 1960, only Tiger Woods and Jack Nicklaus have reached 13 career wins at a younger age than Thomas.
Justin Thomas currently has the most wins of any player on TOUR currently under 30 years old with 13. In 2018, Justin was also the Official World Number One for four weeks, which he reclaimed for a week following his win in Memphis. Thomas’ breakout season came in 2016-17 with five of his PGA TOUR wins, including the PGA Championship, 12 top10 finishes, and, ultimately, the FedEx Championship. His other victories came at the CIMB Classic, Sentry Tournament of Champions, Sony Open in Hawaii, and Dell Technologies Championship. At the Sony Open, Thomas became the youngest player to shoot 59 on the PGA TOUR and also broke the TOUR’s 72-hole scoring record by a stroke.
Thomas, who was born and raised in Goshen, KY, played collegiate golf for the Alabama Crimson Tide. There he became one of the storied program’s most decorated athletes, being named Phil Mickelson Freshman of the Year, Jack Nicklaus Player of the Year, the Haskins Award Winner as the most outstanding player in collegiate and amateur golf, and capped his collegiate career by helping the Crimson Tide win their first National Championship.
