Justin Thomas - Illustrated Profile - Kentucky to the World

Justin Thomas was born and raised in Louisville, KY and has recently attracted a lot of attention for his outstanding performance on the fairway. In 2009 at age 16, two years before he graduated St. Xavier High School, the young golfer played in the PGA Tour’s Wyndham Championship with impressive success. Thomas became a professional golfer in 2013 and just a year later took his first professional win at the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship. In 2017 he clocked five PGA Tour victories including his first Major at the 2017 PGA Championship.

This remarkable achievement landed Justin Thomas amongst Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods, and Jordan Spieth as the fourth golfer under 25 to win five events, including a Major, in a single Tour season since 1960. Other accomplishments this year include becoming only the seventh player in PGA Tour history to shoot a 59; becoming the youngest player to shoot a sub-60 round; being named PGA Tour Player of the Year and being named to the U.S. President’s Cup team. With such an outstanding career already under his belt, we can be sure of many great things to come.
